- Press Release - The San Pedro Holiday Lighted Boat Parade will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2013. This traditional event heralds the holiday season and leads us into the holiday spirit with a fun event filled with twinkling lights, children's laughter, Christmas carols and a spectacular night time boat parade spanning from Wayo's Beach Bar to the north and the Caribbean Villas to the south - with amazing viewing spots everywhere in between.
This year promises to be as well attended and enjoyable as each preceding year has been. We look forward to many regulars participating and invite new entrants to join the fun. There are prizes in a number of categories for decorated boats including most original and most religious and the Mayor's choice with the coveted trophy cup.
The block party at Central Park will feature our favorite charity fundraising booths as well booths with local artists, and food booths proffering seasonal food and drinks from renowned local restaurants. Booth rental applications will be available starting on November 18 at the San Pedro Business Association office.
This year all schools are again invited to participate in the Christmas carol recitals, and a prize shall be awarded for the best school choir. (Please submit an application along with the 2 songs the school will be performing to the committee.)
