Island Estates Boat Parade

The Island Estates Yacht Club Boat Parade is one of the largest and most popular marine events in the Clearwater area and will be celebrating its 42st year. The parade honors the memory of Island Estates Yacht Club members who have passed during the year.
The decorated boats will assemble in Mandalay Channel located between Island Estates and Clearwater Beach at 6:00 pm.  At 6:30 pm, the lead boat will proceed northward through Mandalay Channel.  Then the parade will weave in and out of many of the Island Estate canals before heading over to Coachman Park around 8:00 PM. From there the boats will go under the new Memorial Causeway Bridge turning into the Clearwater Marina Channel before navigating to the Clearwater Yacht Club.  Cash and gift certificate prizes, donated by many area businesses, will be awarded to the best-decorated boats.

Decorated boats assemble in Mandalay Channel and head to Coachman Park, under the Memorial Causeway Bridge and to the Clearwater Yacht Club's judging stand. Prizes awarded for best-decorated boats
