The 24th Annual Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade and 19th Annual Toy Drive for Toys for Tots and Little Smiles will take place Saturday, December 1, 2018. Rain or shine. The parade is set to begin at 6 p.m. and will arrive in Jupiter around 8 p.m. The parade will navigate up the Intercoastal Waterway from North Palm Beach to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.

This parade is an annual event that occurs on the first Saturday in December. With the help of the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County (MIAPBC), the parade creates an exciting event for the whole family. But, this event also gives back in a major way. The parade committee teams up with Toys for Tots and Little Smiles to help make this holiday season brighter for those in need. In 2017, the parade donated over 11,000 toys, books, bicycles, and stocking stuffers. You can help too! Bring a new, unwrapped gift to the parade and the Marines and volunteers will pull up right to your dock! There will be designated drop off bins at the viewing locations.
