    Christmas Parade & Gifts from Santa 

    December 9th, 2017


    As another holiday season rapidly approaches, the Anna Maria Island Privateers would like to invite you to participate in our 2017 Christmas Parade on December 9th, followed by our Gifts from Santa at Coquina Beach; where the man in red will be handing out gifts to the youngsters.  This much anticipated annual event brings great joy to children and adults and to both islanders and those visiting our area.

    We hope you will celebrate this special kick-off to the Holiday Festivities by joining in our parade which begins at Bayfront Park then travels south along Anna Maria Island, through the three island cities. Whether you have participated in the past or if this is your first time, we know you will enjoy the experience and spread the joy to others!


    For those of you that represent local businesses, this is an ideal opportunity for you to: advertise your business, meet potential customers and to show some civic pride.


    You may fill out the parade application online to the left.  You may also print the application and mail it in, or submit it at staging.

    Sincerely,

    Anna Maria Island Privateers
