My family loves boat parades around the Holidays. One of the special treats that living down here enables us to enjoy! We are going to raft up this year near the Caribbean Club and watch the festivities.
This year the Key Largo Parade will honor the 50th year celebration of the John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park.  
Marathon and Key West will also have their parades on Saturday Night .  Here are details as reported in the
