31st Annual Schooner Wharf Bar Lighted Boat Parade

When: December 10, 2022 6:00 PM

Where: Schooner Wharf Bar- Key West Bight

Looking for a unique holiday experience? Head to Key West for the 31st Annual Schooner Wharf Bar/Absolut Vodka Lighted Boat Parade. This annual event is a tropical tribute to the season and a big family affair. 

Parade participants and spectators on the docks watching the parade feel as if they are part of one big family. The festivities begin at 6 p.m. along the brilliantly decorated Harbor Walk, with the Bahama Village Music Program “House of Pan” steel band chimes in with Caribbean, calypso Christmas carols to please the crowds along the warm winter waterfront. 

There are scores of delightfully decorated motor and sailing vessels that compete for bragging rights and there are boatloads of prizes with a Free Raffle. The prizes are guaranteed to spur our local creative seafarers to reach their artistic peaks. Long hours go into crafting inventive designs and stringing garlands and icicle lights from bow to stern.

So join in spreading the spirit where mistletoe hangs from the mast and strings of lights adorn the riggings: at the 31st Annual Schooner Wharf Bar & Galley Lighted Boat Parade.
