Boat Parades

Marathon, Florida
24 42.40 081 N 05.68 W

Here's something we never had in New York, or Vermont. Christmas Boat Parades. Too cold. Vero Beach and Marathon, and presumably lots of other places too, hold very cool parades.

Vero's parade is much more extensive, but Marathon's is cute.   In any event, it makes a good excuse to spend an evening out by the water side.  Many local residents have parties and bonfires on the shore to celebrate.

My video skills are terrible, and that's charitable. Nevertheless, below is my video of the event. Note especially the choo-choo boat. It was very cool.
