So, you can take a stroll down Clematis, visit a few shops, grab a bite or a drink, and end up at the West Palm Beach Waterfront! Visit anytime from November 18-24, 2020.
What’s Christmas in Florida without taking advantage of the great weather and beautiful waterways? Rather than your typical holiday parade, Floridians like to upgrade from floats to real-life water vehicles.

One of the most locally-renowned Christmas boat parades is the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade, which is scheduled for December 11 on the intercoastal waterway.
