One of the most unique parades of the year is the DeLand Christmas Boat Parade. Dating back to the 1920s, brightly lit and beautifully decorated boats of all sizes will cruise the St. John’s River in the 54th annual event. The parade begins at 6:00 p.m., with boats circling Lake Beresford before heading north to the St. John’s River Grille where awards will be presented. There will be a free family-friendly festival prior to the parade at 4:00 on the western short of Lake Beresford at 1889 Hontoon Road. This year’s parade grand marshals are Magic 107.7 radio personality Leslye Gale and her husband, Volusia County Councilman, Ben Johnson.
