Coming To A Dock Near You –
The Christmas Boat Parade On Fowl River
December is a special month at The Pelican Reef.
You get big parties, corporate events, Christmas music, visits from Santa and this:: The Christmas Boat Parade on Fowl River.
It’s that one time of year where people come from all around to see and enjoy the boats going up and down Fowl River.
Every boat is decorated with lights.
Some boats toss throws Mardi Gras-style.
And everyone has a great time.
Here’s the deal this year:
On Saturday, December 19th, the Christmas Boat Parade starts at The Pelican Reef at 6:00PM.
The boats line up at The Pelican Reef at 5.30PM.
At 6PM, they head up Fowl River, under the bridge, all the way up to Bellingrath. The boats continue past Bellingrath and up East Fowl River.
The boats go all the way up to the end of East Fowl River to the No Wake Zone.
Then they turn round and head back.
So you can catch the parade twice!
Once up the river and once on the way back down.
The parade ends back at The Pelican Reef.
When all the boats have made it to the end, the fun doesn’t stop there.
There’s then a small ceremony inside The Pelican Reef.
The boat with the best lights gets a special award for this year’s parade.
The time of the award ceremony varies depending on how many boats are in the parade, but we’re planning on the awards to happen around 10pm.
So there you go!
All the details of this year’s boat parade fun.
Be sure to get out on your dock, call a friend who lives on Fowl River, or simply stop by The Pelican Reef at 6pm on Saturday, December 19th.
Pro Tip: Last year, it was standing room only in the bar and restaurant at 6pm. So if you’re planning on stopping by early for dinner or drinks, consider getting here early so you’ll get a table.
Lastly – There was a lot of interest last year from boat owners.
It was the biggest parade we’ve every had.
And this year is going to be even bigger! If you’re interested in putting your boat in the parade, call The Pelican Reef at 251-973-2670 or stop by to get all the information.
