Treasure Island's Lighted Boat Parade is like Las Vegas on the water - dazzlingly decorated boats of all kinds circle the city on one special night, Friday, December 15, 2017, in friendly competition for top prizes awarded after the parade that evening at The Club at Treasure Island.
Residents with Treasure Island waterfront homes host boat parade parties but if you haven't received an invitation, not to worry - there are plenty of prime viewing spots on the island.
