Sparkle and Shine with Marina Jack and the Sarasota Holiday Boat Parade of Lights

Marina Jack


For over thirty years, the Sarasota Holiday Boat Parade of Lights has dazzled denizens of the Sarasota community, with thousands of sparkling lights and the musical sounds of Christmas filling the air. Proudly presented by Marina Jack, the 2018 parade will take place on Saturday, December 8th beginning at 6:00PM, and is sure to put even the most grinchy of Scrooges in the holiday spirit!

The Sarasota Holiday Boat Parade of Lights will kick off from City Island, making its way across Sarasota Bay to Centennial Park and then south under the Ringling Bridge, across Sarasota’s Bayfront Park. Viewing is available all along the shores of Sarasota Bay, but for a truly spectacular experience, Marina Jack is offering a special four course dinner menu in both the main dining room and the Deep Six Lounge and Piano Bar. Reserved seating will also be available for the evening at the Blue Sunshine Patio Bar and Grill, with live performances by Kettle of Fish from 6:00PM - 10:00PM. You’ll have a front-row seat to the Holiday Boat Parade of Lights award presentation at 8:30PM, and the decorated boats will dock at Marina Jack; perfect for snapping a few pictures and snagging that perfect Christmas-in-Florida holiday card photo!
