The most wonderful time of the year is quickly approaching and in Corpus Christi, we celebrate the holly jolly the best way we know how. In the Gulf Coast Capital, boat parades are just one of the ways we show our cheer. Check out the two boat parades you won't want to miss this holiday season.

Illuminated Boat Parade

Illuminated Boat Parade 

December 4, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. 

Watch downtown Corpus Christi come to life as boats invade the marina and spread the holiday cheer at the illuminated boat parade presented by Port of Corpus Christi. Boaters from Corpus Christi and beyond will sail in style while competing to have the most festive vessel. There's something for everyone with plenty of parks, dining, and more to enjoy in downtown Corpus Christi. You can come for the boats and stay for the hangs. 

La Posada Boat Parade

La Posada Parade 

December 10, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.

It's not South Texas without a posada! The tradition is back and better in Corpus Christi. La Posada is being hosted on the island at Marker 37 Marina. Marker 37 is a premier Texas coast destination for fishing, boating, great food, events & live music where you can now also get the best view of the iconic boat parade. 

La Posada will not only feature the iconic boat parade but will also be hosting Santa and Mrs. Clause watching from Marker 37 and Snoopy's. U.S Marines will also be helping Santa's elves by collecting new, unwrapped toys for tots, and Christmas carolers invite you to sing along at Marker 37 while a DJ and the live band bring the groove to Snoopy's. Even kids can look forward to face painting and hot chocolate on the Sunset Deck. 

Enjoy food by the water, entertainment galore, and phenomenal Gulf Coast Capital holiday vibes as the night is lit up with boats coasting down the Intracoastal Waterway.
