Tampa Boat Parade & Blessing of the Fleet

Celebrate July 4th with Friends of the Riverwalk at the July 4th 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, a poker run, and a 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 most patriotic! Registration is required to participate in the boat parade. Spectators are free. Click though to read about the Captain’s Party on June 26.
