Recently we enjoyed the annual Merritt Island Holiday Boat Parade on Sykes Creek, Florida.  We sat on the dock and watched over 70 Christmas-themed boats sail by.  Each one was covered with up to 1,000 colorful lights.  Some participants added to the fun by throwing candy.  The lights and reflections on the water were magic!  More info is at:  http://www.cffw.org/events/

    Pam, I really enjoyed the holiday parade of boats. My favorite was with the pretty lights forming dolphins pulling a sleigh. ♡ Glad your holiday was special. Hope you have a fantastic new year in 2016! 🙂

      I never imagined how pretty a boat parade could be. So many lights reflecting on the water is really special, and everybody has a good time. We look forward to it every year.
