The Jacksonville (Fla.) Light Boat Parade on Saturday featured dozens of boats decked out with Christmas lights and decorations ranging from candy canes to “Peanuts” characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy.

The parade is an early one among several that take place around the country. It falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and has become an annual tradition for some in the area.

Check out this video from local Channel 4, which covered the event.

Arizona boaters started the season with an early boat parade along the Colorado River, according to the Parker Pioneer.
