The 2015 Lighted Boat Parade, sponsored by the Port O’Connor Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2015.  The parade is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. in the ICW from Larry’s Harbor to just past Clark’s Inn and is open to boats of all sizes that meet the minimum U.S. Coast Guard Safety Requirements.  There is no entry fee.  So, give us a call, decorate your boat and join us.

The Captains’ Safety Meeting will be held at the Inn at Clark’s Inn at 5:30 p.m. on December 5th along with late registration and assignment of parade positions.  The U.S. Coast Guard will have a member at the safety meeting in case of any questions or concerns.

Locals and tourists alike look forward to this annual event, and it is hoped that many boat owners will participate.  Plaques will be awarded in several categories – (Best Overall • Most Spirited • Most Unique • Best Commercial • Best Large Pleasure • Best Medium Pleasure • Best Small Pleasure)  .  This year, as in the past several years, we are happy to announce that the U.S. Coast Guard along with most of the boats and owners who are participants in the Toy Run are planning on being a part of this great tradition.  It looks like this year is no exception – This is going to be a fantastic lighted boat parade.

If you would like to participate, or for more information, visit the Chamber’s website, www.PortOConnorChamber.com and download the registration form or contact the Boat Parade Chairman, Bill Tigrett at 361-983-2671.  So, get out your calendar and mark this event as a MUST SEE!!!  Or, a MUST DO!!! if you join in the fun of being in the parade.
