'Tis the season to jingle and mingle on the harbor front! Join us at the Charleston Maritime Center on Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 5 pm - 8 pm for a fun, festive, family-friendly way to enjoy the Holiday Parade of Boats! Boats adorned with colorful lights will promenade past the viewing docks while guests on shore fill the air with their favorite holiday carols and enjoy the scrumptious tastes of the season. This family-friendly event has become a holiday tradition for young and old from near and far.
Tickets include a catered meal by Swig & Swine, live entertainment by Joe Gallagher, Jr. Duo, cash bar and a special appearance by Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, along with our very own Mayor John Tecklenberg. Come get in the holiday spirit with the BEST views of the Holiday Parade of Boats! And be sure to purchase your raffle ticket for a chance to win a 2019 Sea Fox 200 Viper Bay Boat, valued at $40,000, drawn immediately following the Holiday Parade of Boats. Proceeds from the Viewing Party and Raffle Tickets benefit nonprofit organizations supported by the Historic Rotary Club of Charleston throughout the year during our 100th Anniversary year, 2019/2020.
