Annual Holiday Regatta of Lights
St. Augustine FL
Typically the second Saturday of December

Sailboats, shrimp boats, pontoon boats, power boats, tugs and trawlers and yachts will line up to light up the colorful parade of boats on the bay just north of the Bridge of Lions (between the Bridge and Castillo de San Marcos).

This event is hosted by St. Augustine Yacht Club. Eighteen trophies will be given to the private and commercial sectors to include most colorful, best theme, best in class, and the best overall grand prize! A post-parade reception and awards ceremony is held at the St. Augustine Yacht Club for captains and crews of the parade participants (boats). Visit for details or call 904.824.9725.

For everyone else, there are dozens and dozens of things to do in St Augustine FL!
