Parade takes place Dec. 12
The Anna Maria Island Privateers present the annual Christmas Parade at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 12.
The parade will follow its traditional route, from Bayfront Park in Anna Maria to Coquina Beach in Bradenton Beach.
Also in keeping with tradition, the Privateers will host Santa Claus in the parade, as well as at a post-parade party at Coquina, where Santa will hand out gifts to children.
Refreshments are free for kids.
