About

Lighted boat parade down Bayou Bernard. The Parade begins in Gulfport Lake, down Bayou Bernard to the conclusion at the mouth of the Bayou at Big Lake. Bleacher seating available for public viewing at Gulfport Lake, and at the foot of the Cowan Lorraine Bridge. Click here for details about the Parade route.

Not only do the boats participate in the lighted parade but the waterfront houses also compete to be named the Parade Captain’s Best House on the Bayou and serve as parade judges. This is the only waterfront parade in Gulfport and offers an up close and personal view of the boats with public viewing at three Gulfport boat launches/parks, and several waterfront restaurants.
