The real reward is the chance to be a rock star as you motor close by throngs of your screaming fans shouting the seasons greetings.
The parade route takes you on a tour of Boca Ciega Bay visiting the cities of St Petersburg, Gulfport and Southern Pasadena including several other boating clubs and residential areas.
The proceeds of your entrance fee, two or more toys, go to Gulfport's Operation Santa project. A fine way to begin the Christmas Season. This year's parade is the subject of our latest video below. It's a long one so put another log on the fire.
