Christmas Boat Parade2
 
December 5, 2018 - Orange Beach, AL - (OBA®) - Due to the forecast for heavy rain and storms on Saturday December 8th and concern for the spectators, captains and crews, the Chamber's 2018 Lighted Boat Parade has been cancelled. This is the first time in its 33 year history that the parade had to be cancelled.  
 
Out of respect for the cities, businesses and other activities scheduled in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach the committee decided not to reschedule it.
 
The three primary sponsors - LuLu's, The Wharf and the Flora-Bama Ole River Grill - will be hosting holiday festivities indoors on Saturday, December 8th. The Chamber will also continue to host the 7th Annual Merry Market on both Friday and Saturday at the Orange Beach Event Center.
 
The next Lighted Boat Parade will take place in December of 2019. 
 
The Coastal Alabama Business Chamber would like to thank all of the expected attendees, boat captains and NBC15 News for 32 years of participation. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2019.
