Northshore Christmas Boat Parade

18 December 2022

Join the Hamilton Reach community to watch the Christmas Boat Parade along Brisbane River.

Experience a Christmas lights display like no other when the iconic Brisbane River lights up with a glittering cavalcade of illuminated boats parading the length of Northshore Brisbane, to the sound of Christmas classics and merry hits. 

Residents and visitors of all ages are welcomed to Northshore Riverside Park to be among the first to peep the bedazzled boats in the parade. We'll have a fantastic festive atmosphere with trees and balconies dressed in fairy lights.  Bring your picnic blankets and chairs to enjoy live music by Lisa Maps and a bite from the food trucks Yess ChefLazlos Langos and The Tasty Pocket before the boat parade kids off at 6:45pm. Furry friends are welcome. 

We're also giving away a FREE picnic blanket to the first 50 attendees to visit the Frasers Property marquee.  

Your favourite riverside café, River Room, will be open for the evening and serving food and drinks.
