The Emerald Isle Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, November 25, 2023. The float committee has been working very hard on a great float for this years event. We would love to have as many members as possible to walk or ride and participate in the parade. The attached flyer contains important information for the event.
Saturday, November 25 2:00 p.m.
Your float committee has been working since October to build an awesome Christmas float honoring Jimmy Buffett!! You won’t believe how awesome it really is. The theme is “Sailin’ to Margaritaville Heaven” and features a sailboat flying through the sky to heaven. Since Jimmy was born on December 25, there is a birthday cake and all sorts of things associated with Jimmy Buffett. You will have to see it to believe it.
We are asking Parrot Heads who would like to walk with the float, to join the float at the corner of Black Skimmer Road as we enter Emerald Drive. Families are welcome. Dress for Christmas or dress in island attire, but, please, no reference to alcohol like Landshark hats, etc. The judges will frown upon that! If you would like to hand out candy, please bring a small bag or bucket.
Come one, come all and let’s have a huge turnout honoring our reason for being Parrot Heads!!
