Santa hits the Mooloolah River this festive season
What's the best thing about Christmas on the Sunshine Coast? If you answered presents, food, spending time with family and friends - you'd be wrong. It's all about the boats.

The annual Mooloolaba Christmas Boat Parade is coming back to the local waterways this December. If you're new to the area or will be visiting the Coast this Christmas you're in for a real treat. It's free to attend and fun for everyone.

This is an absolute blast to go along to - the entrants go all out to impress the crowds along the shorelines with their lights, streamers and more. If you've got a boat and have time to deck it out then you're in luck - it's just $25 to enter. Then again, you don't have to be a boat to enter. It's not just the boats getting involved either - the houses lining the canals where the parade take place also get involved. They even have their own category - a great friendly competition for the neighbours to get involved in.

Best bit of all - all entry fees are donated to Sailability Sunshine Coast. It's a local organisation giving people with disabilities the chance to experience the thrill of sailing on the Mooloolah River. Donations from events like this keep it going.
