Share Your Winter Wonderland and Boat Parade Photos on Bradenton Patch

Upload your photos and share your holiday memories.

This weekend will be one of the biggest of the holiday season as snow, santa and a lighted boat parade through downtown to ring in the holidays.

Patch would love to see your family enjoying the day's decorations and events. It's easy to upload your photos and show off your own little elfs.

The 17th annual Winter Wonderland festival is scheduled for 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. today with food, arts and crafts vendors, along with games for kids, hay rides and of course, Santa's workshop created by Westminster. The event’s signature attraction, the snow sledding mountains, will be in the parking lot north of Old Main Pub. There also will be a miniature mountain for toddlers who want to sled.

The Bradenton Fire Department's antique fire truck departs from the south end of Old Main Street around 6 p.m. to escort Mr. and Mrs. Claus to the entrance of Westminster Courtyard, 222 Old Main St., where they will meet with kids until about 8:30 p.m.

At about 8 p.m. the Bradenton Yacht Club’s 15th An­nual Holiday Boat Parade will be passing the downtown waterfront. The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and is ex­pected to pass the downtown waterfront between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The only ones that got to enjoy the boat parade were the ones on the Palmetto side of the river. The boats, other than the first three, never came to the Bradenton side of the river. Most of the people around us left early, many like my family will not return next year.
