NICEVILLE, Fla — The 2020 Santa Paddle Parade raised more than $1,400 for Niceville Sharing and Caring. Hosted by Bluewater Bay Marina Complex, the 3rd annual event was held December 19.
More than 50 participants dressed as Santa Claus and took part by parading on the water via Stand-Up Paddle Boards, canoes, and kayaks.
Participants paddled in the back of Ward Cove and out to Rocky Bayou Bridge to the delight of neighbors and homeowners along the route.
The funds donated to Niceville Sharing and Caring were raised through registration fees and donations.
