DELRAY BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Delray Beach continues its holiday-themed events with a boat parade and Hanukkah celebration.

From the City of Delray Beach:


“Each year, a festive flotilla lights up the Intracoastal waterways with holiday cheers as 35 privately-owned and commercial vessels, decked out in holiday décor, and their costumed captains cruise from Boynton Beach to Delray Beach to compete in the wildly popular boat parade. For many, this family-friendly event has become a beloved holiday tradition to be shared with friends and family. The parade, which begins at 6:30 PM, on December 10, 2021, will form at the Ocean Avenue Bridge in Lantana (near Old Key Lime House) and travel south until it arrives just south of the Linton Blvd Bridge in Delray Beach.”


“Experience the majesty and tradition as we light the first candle for our Annual Hanukkah Festival. The celebration takes place at Old School Square, on Nov. 28th, at 5:30 pm, and will be hosted by City Commissioners and local Rabbis.  Take part in the festival of lights and enjoy traditional holiday treats like latkes and sufganiyot, kids’ arts and crafts, dreidels, and Chanukah gelt.”


The parade (6 PM – 9 PM, Dec. 11, 2021) runs along Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Delray Beach from the Intracoastal Bridge to NW 5th Avenue.  Over 70 entries in the parade to help you celebrate the holidays. Through a special connection to the North Pole, The Delray Beach Fire Department will have Santa riding along on their fire truck.
