Florida is parading their holiday spirit on the waterways again this year! Yuengling was proud to sponsor the Schooner Wharf Bar’s 18th Annual Lighted Boat Parade. Spectators from all over the Florida Key’s and Key West area came out to witness this magical holiday event. The event started off right at the Friday evening Captains’ Meeting, on Schooner Wharf Bar’s upper deck. Parade participants were provided with complimentary Yuengling at this pre-event meeting.

The parade got underway on Saturday December 13th at 8p.m. A variety of vessels participated in the event, including: fishing vessels, sailing ships, private yachts, and charter boats. The sky is the limit for the creative mariners who light up their boats in hopes of winning some of the generous prize packs that are awarded. Decorative themes from years past include: the Grinch, Santa’s sleigh, menorahs, doves of peace, gingerbread men, and many more. This year’s cash and prizes totaled over $20,500 in value. The top twelve boats were awarded with a variety of prize packs. The lucky top three winners received a case of Yuengling Lager in their prize pack. Yuengling would like to thank the Schooner Wharf Bar for hosting this event. Also, thank you to all the participants who dedicated their time to decorate their boats for the enjoyment of those in attendance.
