In a 40-foot monohull sleigh,

"Be Merry" and jingle all the way aboard our spectator boat. Bring your family or friends and a bottle of wine to sip while you watch the parade. We'll anchor in Clear Lake just off the parade route to watch the parade boats from a no-crowds, COVID safe sleigh! Click here for more information or to register for the Spectator Boat.
All sailors are welcome to help decorate our parade boat. Arrive at 1:00 pm to help decorate the boat, then join us for the holiday party before departing for the parade festivities.
