Boca Ciega Yacht Club

2019's 34th Annual BCYC Gulfport Christmas Boat Parade

Each year, BCYC members and members of the general public come together to spread holiday joy by decking the hulls and heading out on Boca Ciega Bay to parade the BCYC way!

We start at the Gulfport Municipal Marina and pass by the BCYC clubhouse on our way out into the bay. Next we head to Gulfport's Williams Pier and the beach, passing by the Gulfport Casino. We make our way through the communities of Town Shores, Kipps Colony and the Pasadena Yacht & Country Club, Pasadena Golf Club Estates and Dolphin Boulevard South where holiday parties wait for us to pass by. Lastly we visit Isla del Sol, then head back to the BCYC clubhouse for the Post Parade party.



But it's about more than fun and merriment! Participants need only a simple fee to enter - two (or more!) unwrapped toys for Operation Santa. Operation Santa, coordinated by the Gulfport police department, collects toys for the children of Gulfport whose holidays would be sadder without the generosity of the community. Boca Ciega Yacht Club is proud to have been part of Operation Santa for over 18 years.

In turn BCYC depends on the generosity of our wonderful parade sponsors, who allow us to shower our participants with fun and useful prizes at the end of the parade. Everyone is a winner at this event and no boat goes home empty handed - please see a list of our 2018 sponsors below. We would love it if you could support these sponsors when doing your holiday shopping!


If you would like to become a 2019 parade sponsor, contact the Christmas Boat Parade Chair, Jenn Buckley, 813-323-5852, or email at boatparade@sailbcyc.org


Entry Fee: Two (or more) unwrapped children's presents OR a check made out to "Operation Santa", the City of Gulfport's annual toy drive. We're proud to have supported this drive for over 18 years!

Prizes: Prizes will be awarded during the Post Parade Party for participating boats. (You must be present to win!)


Post Parade Party: Our Post Parade Party is a potluck party for participating boats and their crew (so bring an appetizer ro dessert to share) with holiday drinks, music, singing and BCYC's legendary rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas (we make no promises on whether or not we can stay in key!)
