2019 Parade participant

Registration is open for the 2020 Holiday Boat Parade on Lake Lanier. It will take place on December 12. The event will raise funds for the Georgia Sherriff’s Dive Team.

“This year we’re really focusing on making sure people can view the parade from many places along the shoreline,” said Richard Pickering, organizer of the annual event. “All boats will gather near Port Royale then parade down the lake past the big marinas and several parks to the dam before ending up back at Margaritaville.”

Suggested donation amounts to enter the parade are $75 for boats under 30 feet, $125 for boats 30-35 feet, and $200 for boats larger than 35 feet.

“We’re hoping to have even more participants this year,” Pickering said. “Last year almost 60 boats joined us.”
