St. Croix Christmas Boat Parade
A holiday favorite event of locals and visitors alike, the St. Croix Christmas Boat Parade has been taking place each December since 1994. Businesses who operate boats as well as those who have their own pleasure crafts deck their boats with the most imaginative holiday and tropical decor. Santa and his reindeer, palm trees, lights galore, even Mocko Jumbies dancing on the boardwalk! A large crowd on the boardwalk enjoys the sight of the boats circling through Christiansted Harbor, cheering for their favorites. The night ends with a wonderful fireworks display that lights up the harbor.
Not only is it fun to watch the boats on the water, but the streets of Christiansted are abuzz with open air vendors, shops stay open late and restaurants offer parade specials on food and beverages. Prior to the parade, there are fun festivities happening on the Boardwalk starting in the afternoon. Be sure to arrive early as the boardwalk fills up fast!
