The fourth Annual Palmetto Bay Canal Association Holiday Boat Parade held Sat, Dec 22, 2013, links to photos

Once again, an annual "thank you!" to Rainer & Noel Schael, as well as all the members and participants of the Palmetto Bay Canal Association Holiday Boat Parade.

Another  wonderful holiday evening was had for the participants and shoreline festive partygoers on Saturday, December 15.  The Fourth 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.  Vice Mayor John Dubois and Council members Patrick Fiore and Tim Schaffer again participated this year.  CLICK HERE to view photos of the 2013 event that I have posted on my personal Facebook page.

The boat parade participants picked up hundreds of canned food collected by residents and passed off from the canal banks to the participating boats.  Great work for all the donations!

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

Santa does selfies??

  3. You filled out the roll quite nicely.

    1. That's role, not roll, or was that intentional?
