Keep Your Boat in the Water for the Holiday Boat Parade!

Is your boat still in the water? The 9th Annual Mystic Holiday Boat Parade and Toy Drive will take place on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. If your sail boat, power boat, dinghy, or high-speed row boat is still in the water, light your vessel, and please join us on Saturday, November 26th for your chance to dazzle the judges. You do not want to miss being apart of this festive tradition.

Decorated vessels will parade down the Mystic River at 6:20 p.m. and return to the Mystic River Park, where spectators and judges will be gathered. Boats will be judged on creativity and team spirit. There will be prizes for Most Charismatic Crew, Innovative Vessel, Best Dressed Vessel, and Miss Mystic Vessel of Grandeur.

Bring your spirits, your vessel, and your crew, for a healthy dose of holiday fun. The only cost to enter is a toy or some winter wear for the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center. For more information on how to register your vessel, please call Alexa Shelton at the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce at (860) 572-9578 or email her at
