ALEXANDRIA, Va., November 23, 2010 - The nation's largest boat owners group wants every American to enjoy some festive holiday cheer on the waterfront with the offering of a new online Holiday Boat Parade Finder at BoatUS.com/Events. The website lets anyone easily seek out local lighted boat parades by state or specific date, and includes website links and contact information. There's also an easy way to add a listing for a boat parade that's not already included.

"Watching a slow parade of boats - each one decorated and lit up brighter than a Christmas tree - is spectacular, and something the kids won't forget," said BoatUS spokesman Scott Croft. "Many holiday boat parades also tie into local festivals, so these events aren't just for the boater in the family."

Croft also mentioned that Santa Claus often appears at boat parades because, "the North Pole is frozen all year long and these parades are his only chance to get out on the water." Croft also refused to speculate on whether Santa prefers powerboating or sailing. "Representing over half a million boaters who own all types of recreational vessels, I'll kindly decline comment, but I encourage you to go to your local boat parade to find out," he added.
