The Kemah Boat Parade is a holiday tradition that draws thousands of visitors to the Kemah Boardwalk every year.

It has been held every year since the first parade in 1949, and is one of the most popular events in Kemah. The parade runs from Nassau Bay Lagoon to the Kemah Boardwalk, it starts at at 6:00PM with fireworks. At 7:30 pm look for the parade entering Seabrook and Kemah Boardwalk.

The Kemah Boardwalk is a historic 5-mile boardwalk along the shore of Nassau Bay in Kemah, Texas. At Bay Street in Kemah, the boardwalk is about high and wide. The boardwalk was built to provide a rural escape from the Houston area for residents of Galveston.

More than 100,000 people traditionally enjoy this event from land and from hundreds of boats anchored throughout the Lake The parade features more than 60 brightly decorated power and sailboats that will traverse the Clear Lake channel from the South Shore Harbour Marina and the Nassau Bay Lagoon to Galveston Bay.

The Kemah Boat Parade is a celebration of boats and the bay. The parade features vessels from all over the world, showcasing their creativity and craftsmanship to visitors on shore.

The Kemah Boat Parade is a one-of-a-kind event that celebrates the beauty of boats and the bay.

History: Unplanned and on a whim, five men from Bay Area Houston took a moment on Christmas Day to decorate their boats with lights and parade them around Clear Lake. They used their creativity to give Clear Lake something new and exciting for the holidays. Viewers loved their decorations on the lake, which became the first "Clear Lake Christmas Boat Parade".

Red Adair—who was portrayed in a film by John Wayne and is locally famous for being a firefighter at oil wells, though the true story loosely based on his life was depicted in "Hellfighters"—was one of five boaters to start the association. The Best Overall Boat award is now called the L.L. Boerger Award and is named after the hometown hero who has come to Clear Lake every year for 60 years, just in time for Christmas.

Presented by the Cities of Clear Lake Shores, Kemah, League City, Nassau Bay and Seabrook.
