2nd Annual Harbor’s Christmas Boat Parade in Ocean Springs is on Dec. 13th

At least 15 boats will light up the water during The Jackson County Small Craft Harbor’s “2nd Annual Christmas Boat Parade” on Saturday, December 13th. The parade route will begin near the Ocean Springs Yacht Club at 6 p.m. and then run along Front Beach to the entrance of the Small Craft Harbor in Ocean Springs.

“We want to invite everyone to come out and watch the lighted boat parade,” says Harbor Master Danny Jalanivich. “It’s a fun family event that both boaters and spectators will enjoy.”

Boaters interested in participating can still register at the Harbor Office. A Captain’s Meeting will be held Thursday, December 11th at 6 p.m. Every boat entry will get commemorative coffee mugs courtesy of Seymour Engineering.

The Parade’s lead boat will be accompanied by Grand Marshall Bobby Cox, Ocean Springs Alderman and Parade Marshall Troy Ross, Jackson County Supervisor.

There is no entry fee, however parade organizers are requesting boaters donate non-perishable food items for The Lord is My Help. The public is also welcome to donate. A drop box will be set up at the Harbor Office through December 13th.

The boat with the overall “Best Holiday Decorations” will be recognized with the “Anchor Award” at a reception following the parade.
