The parade begins at Salty Sam’s Marina and will pass many restaurants on the back bay such as Parrot Key Caribbean Grill, Original Shrimp Dock, Matanzas on the Bay, Nervous Nellie’s, Bonita Bill’s, Dixie Fish Co. and Doc Ford’s where you can kick back and enjoy the fun.
Other spots to watch the parade are near the former fountain next to Nervous Nellie’s and at the ends of the first two canals in Siesta Isles. Be sure to bring a chair if you go to Siesta Isles.
Another option is to enjoy the parade by water on the Salty Sam’s Pirate Cruise, Lagerhead Cycleboats or the Sight Sea-R Cruise.
Due to COVID-19, safety measures such as masks are required, and social distancing will be practiced.
