TAMPA — People disappointed about the cancellation of Friday night's lighted boat parade have another chance to see festively decorated vessels tonight during the Hillsborough River Boat Parade at Lowry Park.
The lights are on at 6 p.m. from the Lowry Park Boat ramp to the Harbor Club at Nebraska Avenue.
This will be the Friends of the River's 10th annual parade.
Organizers say there is plenty of parking and places to watch from the shoreline along Lowry Park up to the Harbor Club at Nebraska Avenue.
Sulphur Springs Park at the corner of N Nebraska Avenue and E Bird Street offers another vantage point with ample parking.
And if you own anything that floats and you'd like to make a spectacle of it, organizers say it's not too late to join the procession. Just show up at the Lowry Park boat ramp at 5:30 p.m. and you're in, organizer Phil Compton said. "No registration necessary," he added.
