The annual Holiday Regatta of Lights is a spectacular, colorful parade of boats of all types decorated with festive lights for the Christmas Holiday. The vessels “parade” before the crowds on the Bayfront just North of the Bridge of Lions. There will be sailboats, sport-fishermen, shrimp boats, trawlers, and more.
This annual event reflects on the maritime heritage of the Oldest City and is in keeping with St. Augustine’s historical seaborne image. Visitors and locals can view the event from the Seawall on the Bayfront, the Castillo de San Marcos, the Bridge of Lions, and the Eastern shore of the bay. Come early and get a ‘prime’ spot for viewing!
