This Saturday, December 5, Charleston will be holding its 28th Annual Parade of Boats. 

Get on board with this Lowcountry holiday tradition as the display of festively lighted boats proceeds through the Harbor, with a brilliant fireworks display to follow the parade. View the procession along Charleston's waterfront or decorate your own boat and join the parade.

The Parade begins along Mount Pleasant at 5 p.m., and viewing from the Peninsula will start around 6:30. A fireworks display will begin at approximately 6:45.
