Dockside Café in Niceville is giving a free family dinner to boaters who spread the Christmas spirit by decorating their boats and displaying them at the restaurant’s docks during its Christmas Dock Party, Saturday, Dec. 10, beginning at 5:30 PM.
“Help Chef Ernie save the Niceville Boat Parade,” reads the flyer, which offers a FREE family catfish platter, a pitcher of domestic beer and a pitcher of soda to the skippers of decorated boats.
A spokesman for Dockside said the restaurant was trying to spark interest among boaters to keep the annual tradition going and create greater interest for the return of the Niceville boat parade next year.
The Christmas Dock Party will feature Niceville High School’s Opus One performing all evening beginning at 5:30 PM. Santa Claus will stop by and give candy canes to all the youngsters who attend.
