Annual Holiday Parade of Boats & Viewing Party

‘Tis the season to jingle and mingle on the harbor front! Join the Rotary Club of Charleston as we celebrate the holiday season with a viewing party of the Holiday Parade of Boats at the Maritime Center. Enjoy savory foods, holiday tunes and the best vantage point for viewing boats decorated in lights, trees, music and more as they dance across the harbor.

5pm - 8pm

Presented by the Rotary Club of Charleston, City of Charleston and the Charleston Sail and Power Squadron, the 3rd annual Holiday Parade of Boats viewing party will be held at the Charleston Maritime Center on Saturday, December 10 with sounds of the holiday season and captivating holiday lights on boats that will promenade past the viewing docks.

Tickets are available in advance for $25 for adults; children 17 and under can attend for $5.
VIP Friends and Sponsor packages start at $250.

Net proceeds from the event, which we hope eventually will rival holiday boat parades in places like San Diego, San Francisco, and Fort Lauderdale, will fund various charitable endeavors and community projects for our club.

This annual event helps to raise funds for the Rotary Club of Charleston Foundation! Every year, dozens of local organizations apply for funding for non-operating grants to pay for short-term projects or one-time needs. Through the boat contest and Parade Party, club leaders say they want to build the foundation’s funding so more groups can get help every year.
