Where to view from?
...... any of the restaurant/bars/marinas listed above, or privately from many of the homes, condominiums and apartments along the parade route having private viewing parties. If you're not from Marathon keep in mind that the Harbor is about 3 miles long, so there is no "One" spot to go to view. Familiarize yourself first with a map of the area. Links to some of these restauraunts/bars/marinas are listed below - click to go to their websites:
Lazy Days Marathon Marina Docks Pancho's Fuel Dock

There has been recent confusion over this long standing BKH Boat parade with new holiday activities at Faro Blanco Resort Bayside, and possibly with Marathon Rotary. They do have some separate activities, but they DO NOT sponsor nor run the annual Harbor Boat Parade. Sam Nelson and I started this parade in 1997 and it has been sponsored all of these years by the Marathon Sail and Power Squadron. We passed the "torch" to run this parade to Marathon Marina. Please contact them to register.
