Yes Virginia, there will be a Palmetto Bay Boat Parade in 2017 - here is an update.

I love a good parade #SmallTownUSA  The Palmetto Bay Boat Parade has been developing  for years.  This year saw a hiccup, but it is moving forward.

The parade will take place on December 16 -for those who live along the canal and the boat parade route, plan your backyard parties now.

Usually we start at 5:30 at Coral Reef Park.

Join your fellow Palmetto Bay Friends and Residents to help us ring in the holiday season and support your neighbors in need. All canned foods gathered will support local families. This year’s theme is COMMUNITY!! Canned food drop-off points can be found at:

Palmetto Bay Village Hall

Parade Participants will meet on their boats at Coral Reef Park at 5:30pm. The parade route will travel south on the canal through Palmetto Bay, passing Bill Sadowski Park and ending in southwest Palmetto Bay.

Canned food donations will be accepted at the pedestrian bridge at Coral Reef Park between 4:30 and 5:30pm, at Bill Sadowsli Park and along the parade route.

Spectators can enjoy the parade from Coral Reef Park, Bill Sadowski Park, or anywhere along the canal parade route. Gather your family and friends in the beautiful Palmetto Bay outdoors while celebrating the spirit of the holidays.

If you wish to enter your boat into the parade, or for additional information, please email Rainer Schael at or call (305) 799-8533
More information will follow - more work needs to be done, but it appears positive and I anticipate everything will fall into place, so I am advising that the Boat Parade is ON! and providing basic facts, including dates.

Your Mayor,
