Holiday celebration by land or by sea


Boats strung with lights and playing Christmas jingles will spread the holiday spirit in the 26th annual Weeki Wachee Christmas Boat Parade taking place tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. Vessels large and small will start the parade by launching off at Roger’s Park in Spring Hill, float down the channel and then return back to Roger’s Park to finish the show. Weeki Wachee Marina Manager James Lanier Jr. says boats which participate in this family event donate either toys or a cash donation for a good cause.

Lanier says attendees can go to the Upperdeck Restaurant, Roger’s Park or the Bayport Pier for the best view of the parade.
