The Third Annual Palmetto Bay Canal Association Holiday Boat Parade held Sat, Dec 15, 2012, links to photos

wonderful holiday evening was had on Saturday, December 15.  The third Annual Palmetto Bay Canal Association Holiday Boat Parade* moved forward along the C100 canal. The canal was lined with Palmetto Bay residents and guest who observed the parade as part of their festive parties or simply set up chairs or even a bonfire or two, to watch the parade. Council members Patrick Fiore and Tim Schaffer participating this year.  CLICK HERE to view photos of the event I have posted on my personal Facebook page.

The boat parade participants were actually able to pick up canned food collected by residents and passed off from the canal banks to the participating boats.  The canned food was collected for “Feeding South Florida” formerly known as the Daily Bread Food Bank.

This is a fun family event privately organized by the Palmetto Bay Canal Association. The group is again collecting canned food along with local eatery “Hole in the Wall Pub.” An after parade party was held at the Hole in the Wall Pub on 184 Street.

This is a wonderful community event that brings participants, friends and neighbors together in the holiday spirit, raises food for a good cause, and is supported both by members of the residential community as well as a local business.

The Palmetto Bay Canal Association is made up of Palmetto Bay (and Pinecrest) residents that are both users and stewards of our local canal system. The group includes pleasure boaters, fishermen, skiers, canoers and kayakers.
