From seaside Santas to glow-in-the-dark palm trees, the holiday glitz of Gulfport's annual Christmas boat parade is captured on a YouTube video. The 16-minute video shows why the yearly Boca Ciega Yacht Club parade is so popular with locals. What a great promotion for the city and quality of life in Gulfport, let alone the temperate weather in December. The parade is open to anyone (with a boat, of course) and welcomes spectators, with a party that follows. The video was originally posted on Svhideaway.blogspot.com.
