Mooloolaba Marina Christmas Boat Parade - 2 December 2006
The Mooloolaba Marina Christmas Boat Parade is truly an annual event on the Sunshine Coast and something not to be missed. The effort, time and enthusiasm that all the boat owners put into decorating and lighting their boats, is a true testament to their spirit and enjoyment of this parade whilst spreading the holiday spirit for the entire community to enjoy.
We strive each year to make the parade bigger and better for all those people from nearby and afar to view this spectacular evening parade on the Mooloolaba and Kawana waterways.
Yachts, powerboats, canoes and other small boats will once again light up the waterways as they wind their way through the river and canal to give spectators in the restaurants, parks, public areas, yacht club and private homes adjoining the water, an incredibly enjoyable sight.
