Jacksonville Light Boat Parade

A NEFLa favorite: vessels of all shapes and sizes deck their hulls with illuminated décor then float along the St. Johns River’s north and south banks. It’s like a Viking funeral but with more eggnog and less human sacrifice. The evening culminates with a fireworks show off the Main Street and Acosta Bridges–since, in Jacksonville, nothing says “Seasons Greetings” quite like a big boom!


6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24, St. Johns River, Downtown. We suggest watching from Riverwalk.
