Lake Travis Lighted Boat Parade

The date is set so mark your calendars for the 2021 Lake Travis Lighted Holiday Boat Parade!!!

BOATERS– We will meet at the mouth of Hurst Creek at Sunset. There are 5 categories to compete in: Sailboat, Runabout/Ski boat, Cruiser, Pontoon and Houseboat/Barge. We also crown a grand champion… This year will mark the 8th year in a row the marinas are gathering unwrapped toys for Brown Santa, the Travis County Sheriff’s toy drive.

This is a free event for you to participate in; however, it is strongly recommended that you donate some unwrapped toys to Brown Santa. There will be collection barrels at the marinas through December 10th. Brown Santa is a Travis County Sheriff program that provides toys to underprivileged children all over the county. Great cause!

This year, we do not have an endpoint given the closing of the Gnarly Gar, and the building is being renovated for the next tenant for a spring opening. With that said, Crosswater Yacht Club left the big tent up in the parking lot and are hosting the after-party and awards. This is a private event for ticket holders.

The marinas around Lakeway have been doing a great job putting together the largest and brightest parade every year!!!

GENERAL PUBLIC– There are a few public places to watch the parade go by including Lakeway Resort and Spa on the south shore. Call Lakeway Resort prior to the event to ask about the cost associated with their watch party.

Please note: the event is posted as a public event but Crosswater Yacht Club is a private, gated marina. Only marina clients and ticket holders of the After Party guests will be allowed. Security will be present at the gate during the event.

We hope everyone makes plans to decorate their boat and meet us out on the water.
