Giving Thanks for Boating Events

Understandably there are not any boat shows in the US this weekend as we officially kick off the holiday season with our Thanksgiving celebration.

But if you like to look at boats as much as we do, you’re in luck. Boat parades - where several boats get decked out with Christmas lights, line up, and slowly cruise through a harbor just after sundown - have become a popular tradition among boaters this time of year.

You can enjoy boat parades this weekend in Cocoa (Florida), Eden(Maryland) and Parker (Arizona), and in several more locations throughout December.

There is one major boat show kicking off Saturday, but you have to go to Brazil to see it. In other boat show news, the New Orleans Boat Show has been canceled for 2010 and is expected to resume in January, 2011.

For details of this weekend’s events and future boat shows and parades, visit our boat show calendar.

There will be no post tomorrow, so have a Happy Thanksgiving! We'll see you on Friday with our Sea Song of the Week.
