Typical Lighted Boat

Well, it’s that time of year again. Our palm trees are adorned with Christmas lights, festive cheer is everywhere and the annual Punta Gorda Isles Christmas boat parade will be making its way along the perimeter canal turning around in the Key Largo basin and heading back out again.

For those of you Northerners who may be unfamiliar with a Christmas boat parade, it is a parade of boats decorated to the nines with Christmas lights that travel through the neighborhood canals bringing good cheer to homeowners along the canals. Landside, many homeowners host holiday parties on the night of the boat parade so that their guests can enjoy this annual event as well. 

This is just one of several boat parades throughout the area. There is also a much larger parade that crosses Charlotte Harbor from Port Charlotte to Punta Gorda.

Burnt Store Isles Lighted Boat Parade

If you lived in Burnt Store Isles, last night you would’ve witnessed an annual tradition: The lighted boat parade. The BSI parade is sandwiched between the Punta Gorda lighted boat parade and the Punta Gorda Isles boat parade. Basically, three weekends of boat parades. We sat on the lanai and watched the boats as they passed by spreading their festive cheer.

Burnt Store Isles offers sailboat access throughout the community, meaning there are no bridges to go under on your way out to open water. Waterfront properties feature no less than 30′ of seawall upto more than 200′ of seawall. Find the perfect Burnt Store Isles home or property for you.
