We’ve put together a bird’s eye view of the Parade Route using Google Earth. We’ve marked the key anchoring areas and viewing locations.
This year’s parade will be held on December 12th starting at 6:30pm in the New River and Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway of Ft Lauderdale. If you plan to participate by boat, you must register prior to the December 8th Captains’ meeting. To watch by boat, make sure you anchor up in one of the recommended areas prior to 4:00pm to avoid shutdowns of the ICW and New Rivers. There are multiple areas available for land viewing. Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is one of the prime locations – featuring both open ($2 per person) and reserved seating. The park will be closed to motorized traffic so catch a shuttle bus from Holiday Park off Sunrise Ave. For official information, please visit the Winterfest Parade Website.
