"This is usually the week that people call, wanting to be a part of it," Blue told The Log.

Commercial, charter and private boats will light up the harbor. They will compete for prizes in several categories, including private 30-feet and under, private 31-feet and over, charter/commercial 30-feet and under, charter/commercial 31-feet and over, tour boat/motorized, sailboat 30-feet and under, sailboat 31-feet and over, and best overall.

The Destin Fire Boat will lead the procession, which will begin south of the Marina Café, along Holiday Isle. Boats will continue east to the Grand Harbor Condos, where they will turn around and travel back west along the harbor shore.

After the parade, awards will be presented to the winners at Harry T's Lighthouse and a fireworks show will light up Destin harbor.

Boat captains who wish to participate in the parade can contact the Destin Fishing Museum at 837-6611. Entry fee is $25 per boat. In case of bad weather, the boat parade will be rescheduled for Dec. 22.
