The 19th Annual River Lights Boat Parade…is now and forever, The Cotee River Christmas Boat Parade!
Ahoy to all Boat Captains! Get ready for the annual boat parade on the Pithlachascotee River on the evening of December 1st. Brightly lit decorated boats and kayaks will launch from Miller’s Bayou, in Port Richey at 6:30 pm. The boats will cruise by the admiring crowds that are viewing the parade from waterfront restaurants, holiday house-parties and sidewalks along the river bank. The parade leads down river to New Port Richey’s famous, Sims Park, where boats glide by the judging stands.
The Cotee River Christmas Boat Parade winner will have a complimentary entry in the Rotary Club of Holiday Christmas Street Parade (December 8th).
The boat parade has become a cherished holiday event that was started in 2000 by the New Port Richey Main Street program to celebrate our river and beautiful Sims Park. Together residents and visitors have the opportunity to create lasting memories with their families. The Main Street program is dedicated to the community and host several events throughout the year in New Port Richey.
