Tampa Boat Parade & Blessing of the Fleet

Come on out to this 4th of July trifecta!

Celebrate July 4th with Uncle Sam and Friends of the Riverwalk’s annual Boat Parade, Water Ski Show, & Blessing of the Fleet. The parade route will be similar to the annual holiday light boat parade but will include a Water Ski Show to kick off the celebration. The fun continues with a poker run, DJ on the Wharf, a photo station, game zone, and the blessing station.

The Blessing of the Fleet is a tradition that began years ago but is still practiced in many fishing and boating communities around the world to ensure a safe and bountiful season.

Boats will be decorated in colorful flags and compete for the most patriotic! Registration is required to participate in the boat parade. Spectators are free. Click though to read about the Captain’s Party.
