Indian Rocks Beach Florida | This Year’s Holiday Boat Parade was Windy and Magically Wonderful in 2007

Indian Rocks Beach Holiday Boat Parade is a local Tradition

Indian Rocks Beach Holiday Boat Parade December 2007Indian Rocks Beach Florida –  This past weekend our family went to Jimmy Iguana’s Restuarant and Open Air Waterfront Bar, a popular dock and dine (boaters always welcome here) in the Holiday Inn Harborside. It was the perfect spot to watch this years Indian Rocks Beach’s Holiday Boat Parade of 2007.

Now after a glorius week of 83 degree weather in Tampa Bay Florida, Saturday we were in for a change and the coldfront brought strong winds which started kicking up earlier that day as I watched the Clearwater Holiday Parade.

By sunset the tempatures had start dropping but nothing could dampen the spirits of those watching the dancing Christmas light on all the decked out boats along our intercoastal waterway. These Tampa Bay boaters were creative and colorful and each decorated boat was unique. Here are a couple of videos showing some of the boats in this years Indian Rocks Beach Boat Parade.

When you watch the videos you can hear the wind whipping out there. The captains did a great job keeping all the boats from bumping into each other in the narrow canal as it took an extra 30 minutes for some of the boats to make it to the parade. I hope the video gave you a glimpse into Christmas along the Tampa Florida Beaches.

There was a fabulous display of lights, decorations, animation and music on the boats that participated in this years Indian Rocks Beach Holiday boat parade. I guess the $4000 in prize money helped energize everyone’s Christmas spirit.

I took some pictures (however I need a better flash – rumor is Santa is hoping to bring one this year :-)) I also took some videos to share the experience for those that weren’t able to be with us in Indian Rocks Beach Florida this year.

Boating and Waterfront Living in Tampa Bay

Boating is part of living on the waterfront in Tampa Bay. If you want to enjoy boating we have lots of different ways to enjoy boating from buying your own boat to being part of a boating club or sail boat racing team. We even have extensive classes at the Clearwater Sailing Center and the Clearwater Power Squadron. Wishing lots of “fun by the foot” when boating in 2008 as my friend, Shane Faunce says.

Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Just 5 more days until Christmas – Are you ready?

    Christmas in Clearwater Beach! I knew you were the local expert, but now, armed with video in hand, you can share all your favorite hang out spots… I look forward to it. Terry McDonald

    That is cool. I’ve never seen a boat parade before, and I live in Florida, but not down near Indian Rocks. I would love to come down to Clearwater around Christmas and enjoy a good parade and warmer weather.

  3. Cyndee Haydon

    Terry – it’s so much fun to share – I still need to write about your visit and the Hurricane Restaurant in Pass-a-Grille.

    Karl – don’t you have them in Pensacola? You should check and see they are so fun and festive. You can see the boaters dancing on the boats, there were Santa’s and more. We had close to 10 here over the last 2 weeks.

    The Indian Rocks Beach Boat Parade sure sounds like a fun and unique way to celebrate the season! For those of land-locked folks, it’s hard to imagine :)

  6. Ashley Drake Gephart

    Cyndee what a great way to have a festive holiday. This boat parade looks like a blast! Thanks for taking us along virtually. – Ashley

  7. Karl Burger

    It does sound fun. Maybe your waterways down in Clearwater, or Indian Rocks are more conducive to a parade than the ones we have in Pensacola. I don’t really know where they would have one here. Sounded like a really cool idea though.

  8. Cyndee Haydon

    Sandi – it’s so funny how we take our blue backyards for granted sometimes – thanks for visiting the hammock.

    Newthai – thanks for visiting

    Ashley – I find them a special part of the holidays :-)
    Karl – hmmm – you may be right – our parades usually take part in our intercoastal waterways – not in the open gulf of mexico – do you have intercoastal waterways and harbors in Pensacola?
