Light up the holiday season by attending the City of Jacksonville's 2012 Jacksonville Light Parade Saturday, November 24 at 7:00 p.m. 

 Join the thousands of families who enjoy this Thanksgiving weekend tradition by gazing at the colorfully decorated and brightly lit boats as they float down the St. Johns River. Admission to the event is free and all are welcome to bring blankets and chairs for this magical evening. 

The parade is open to sailboats and powerboats of all shapes and sizes.

Following the boat parade will be the Holiday Fireworks Spectacular. Fireworks will be shot from river barges in front of the Jacksonville Landing, Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront and Metropolitan Park. Both the parade and fireworks show will be visible from the northbank and southbank of the downtown riverfront.
