This time of year never fails to completely sneak up on me and fly by at a breakneck pace! It’s filled with so much excitement and fun, and every year I think I appreciate the holiday season a little more… Holiday cards and shopping, quality time with family, unforgettable parties with friends, and a general sense of goodwill to mankind.
Nothing screams the holidays in Key West like the annual Lighted Boat Parade. It is such a gorgeous spectacle on the water. The harbor fills with schooners, fishing boats, and of course Fury’s catamarans drenched in lights.
There’s plenty of places onshore to catch the parade, but really, there’s nothing quite like being a part of it. This Saturday, you can join us on the water for the dazzling light show. Our catamaran will depart from the Westin Marina at 7:30 complete with Santa Rum Punch, beer, wine, champagne, and sodas. We won’t leave you hungry either with a smorgasbord of delectable holiday canapés!
Last year, Stephen and I hopped onboard. The weather was perfection and we had such a great time. I remember it as the true kickoff to the holiday season. I can’t wait for this year! My holiday social calendar with Fury is definitely filling up nicely. Our annual holiday party is right around the corner after the Lighted Boat Parade. Not to mention, the Christmas Day Ultimate Adventure!
At Fury, we’re sending holiday cheer to you and yours wherever you happen to be celebrating. We’d certainly love to see you down in the tropics, too! Happy happy holidays!
