Yacht Club Announces December Parade Date

The 39th Annual Palm Coast Holiday Boat Parade, presented by the Palm Coast Yacht Club, will be held on December 3, 2022. The date was set in coordination with the City of Palm Coast and City Mayor David Alfin. With an unprecedented 74 registered boats, last year’s parade not only set a new record for Palm Coast, but it is now considered the largest community boat parade in the State of Florida.
Once again, the parade will be broadcast live by Flagler Broadcasting on KOOL-FM. Grand Marshalls will be Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly and The Honorable David Alfin, Mayor of Palm Coast.
The parade will be held in honor of the late Joe Rizzo. A long-time champion of the Flagler County School System and a major mover and shaker in the Palm Coast community, Rizzo was executive director of the Flagler Education Foundation. Said Boat Parade Chair Sarah Ulis, “We are grateful to his widow, Teresa, for agreeing to have the parade held in his memory.”
Lead boat for the parade is “SunShine,” a 55-foot wide body Viking, owned by Palm Coast Yacht Club members Ken Mazzie and Donna Heiss. Registration is now open on the Yacht Club’s website, www.palmcoastyachtclub.com.
