St. Andrews Bay was set ablaze with the glow of lights Saturday night to the delight of thousands of onlookers.

The 25th annual boat parade of lights took off just before 6:00pm. The boats passed by the Panama City Marina and then traveled to the St. Andrew’s Marina at about 7p.m. and that's where the parade ended.

There were family activities throughout the night at both marinas including the FSU-UF game on a big TV, live music, kid’s activities and food and drinks.

    I had heard there was suppose to be in the upward of 30 boats, and I know I saw one boat with a registration number of 41. However, I think I only counted about 7 boats. My family stayed awhile to see if some of the boats had "fallen behind", but to no avail no more boats showed up. It was a hugely disappointing parade. Here's to the hope of a better one next year.

    Where were all the boats? If I am correct this was the 25th annversary - should have been a big deal. There were so few boats this year if you blinked you'd miss half the parade. Too bad......been coming for years and this was the smallest I remember, not worth the wait & parking hassle. Agree about the music lots of time before & after for the landside concert.

    Why did there have to be live music from a band drowning out the Christmas music and inter changes with boat crews and passanger? The music could have been before the "parade" or after, not during.
