Santa Not Delivering Gifts in Christmas Boat

I was so looking forward to my plans this evening to attend Holiday on the Harbor here in my hometown of Carrabelle, Florida, along the Gulf of Mexico. However, Santa Delivering Gifts in Christmas Boat will not be happening today!

Plans Change Along With Weather Report

Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce says:

"Just got another report in and the front is moving North Eastward with solid rain through midnight and wind gusts could be up to 50 miles an hour. We are making the decision for safety reasons for the boats/crew and visitors. The Parade is rescheduled for tomorrow-Sunday at 6:30 pm. The weather looks fine for tomorrow. Please spread the word. We will keep you updated with info. We apologize and are sorry for the inconvenience to anyone, but safety comes first."

Carrabelle Florida Christmas Boat Parade Rescheduled

"The Fireworks will be a go for tomorrow night (Sunday) after the Boat Parade! Holiday on the Harbor will start at 5 pm on Marine Street and the Boat Parade will start around 6:30 on the River!"

Dreary Wet Outside My Front Door

Linking up with Six Word Saturday

6WS is a blog hop where we use six-word sentences (or more, if thou art wordy as I) to describe our day!


  1. Oh, no! What a bummer when weather forces a change of plans.

  2. I can sympathize. Our parade was cancelled due to ice :( There will be no make-up date. Great sadness since that is a big part of the community Christmas celebration.

  3. Our weather has been dry, dry, dry this year (in Cali - we are in the midst of a serious drought). I am hoping that the rain picks up in the new year. So, I'm a bit jealous of your rain. But, I'm glad they are able to reschedule quickly and I hope it goes off without a hitch tomorrow! (Visiting from SWS)

  4. It's been pouring rain here all day too. Luckily I got to see a boat parade the day after Thanksgiving on the Savannah River @ Savannah's River Street. Cold, but not wet. Enjoy your rescheduled boat parade tomorrow ... and happy holidays to you.

  5. It's rough when the holiday plans have to completely change because of weather! Really hope you are able to move forward tomorrow!

  6. We need to prepare to be flexible. I look at plans as, "Lord willing, and if the creeks don't rise." :)


I appreciate your comments!
Blessings & a bit o' sunshine!
