The Greater Pompano Beach/Lighthouse Point/Margate Chamber of Commerce will host the 56th Annual Pompano Beach & Lighthouse Point Holiday Boat Parade Sponsored by Joey Accardi Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & Ram, on Friday, December 14th from 6 P.M. until 10 P.M. In addition to the festivities, spectators will enjoy the decorations and excitement of watching over 50 boats participating in this holiday parade.
We are anticipating a great turn-out and we are so proud to announce that this year’s Grand Marshals are members of “Freedom Fighter Outdoors”, a non-profit organization that raises awareness, funds and services for injured veterans of any age to enjoy outdoor sports and a variety of outdoor activities. The Freedom Fighter Outdoors members will be on the Lead Boat in the parade and will visit the Sands Harbor Resort & Marina where the National Anthem will be performed by Stoneman Douglas student “Samantha Grady”, said Jean McIntyre, President and CEO of the Pompano Beach/Lighthouse/Margate Chamber of Commerce.
Event Chair, Rhonda Bunker will be joined by “Victoria Burgess” who recently paddle boarded from Cuba to Key West. All new commemorative T-shirts were designed by local artist “Dennis Friel” of which part of the proceeds will go to benefit the Freedom Fighter Outdoors organization.
And as a reminder to everyone, the bridges on Atlantic Blvd, 14th St. Causeway and Hillsboro Blvd will be in the upright position from approximately 6:15 P.M. until 9:30 P.M. for the Boat Parade to pass by. Traffic is usually extra heavy in those areas so please plan accordingly and drive safely.
