Lake Travis Holiday Boat Parade of Lights

Join us for the most anticipated event of the season, the Lake Travis Lighted Boat Parade on Dec 3rd and December 10th.

Avoid sitting in your car for hours to see the same lights you see every year and head to Lake Travis for a show that will be lit. With contests and bragging rights at stake you’ll be sure to see some incredible-looking boats showing off their holiday decorating skills!

This small group cruise lets you meet new people while taking in the sights of the Lake Travis in-the-water holiday boat parade. There is no better way to entertain the kiddos, friends, or relatives. Perfect for solo travelers or small groups who don’t want to rent an entire boat themselves.

December 3rd will be benefiting Brown Santa, the Travis County Sheriff’s toy drive. You can bring toys to donate! So bundle up and join us for the most exciting light shows in Austin!

The marinas around Lake Travis have been doing a great job of putting together the largest and brightest in-the-water boat parade every year. This is a must see or participate if you love boating and the holidays!
