Punta Gorda Isles Christmas Boat Parade

The parade was held December 17th and the route took the boats around the perimeter canal and along some of the transit canals.  I’m not sure how many boats took part this year but, it was an enjoyable evening watching the effort and creativity that went into the displays.  Some simple and some elaborate but all reflected the joy of their owners in taking part in the parade.

Speaking of Joy, that was the theme of the first boat in the parade which had an Angel with a trumpet announcing the arrival of the boats.  The boat was quickly followed by others.

   

   

   

My favorite of the evening though was an animated display of a Poinsettia being watered and blooming as the boat passed by.  Just click on any image below for a better view.
