The annual Opening Day on the Bay shows off over 105 historic workboats, fireboats, towboats, classic and contemporary craft.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Holidays on the Bay.” The parade will be a fun display of boats decorated to depict various holidays from flag flying holidays, holiday celebrations, days to honor historic figures or commercially created calendar holidays.
This marks the official start of the San Francisco boating season.
Prior to the beginning of the parade is the Blessing of the Fleet. As in every year, the Corinthian invites all vessels of all sizes to participate in the 56th Annual Blessing of the Pleasure Craft, by sailing or motoring past the blessing vessel in Raccoon Strait, between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm.
The parade begins at noon. Boat Parade registration is free.
This is a unique opportunity to see the annual decorated boat parade which sails close to the shore, so land-based spectators can view from almost anywhere along SF’s northern shoreline.
