Santa Claus is coming to Mystic with the Holiday Lighted Boat Parade in Historic Downtown Mystic. Thousands gather at the Mystic River Park to watch Santa arrive! 

Come in a sailboat or other floating craft to join the parade.

Your entry fee is a new or like new coat or toy donated to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center. We will be accepting donations in advance at the Mystic Chamber office, 22 East Main st., and before the start of the parade at the Mystic Seaport Museum.

Please plan to catch the 3:40pm Drawbridge opening to rendezvous at Mystic Seaport prior to the Parade
