The Miami Outboard Club is hosting its 17th annual Holiday Boat Parade and Toy Drive beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday in Bayfront Park, 301 N. Biscayne Blvd.

About 50 boats are planned to take part in the water show. Food trucks, bounce houses, live music and a fireworks show will take place during the parade.

Those interested in attending the event can park for free at Bayside if they donate a toy, which will benefit Centro Mater Child Care Services, Riverside Elementary and Stadium Apartments, among other nonprofits.

Leading the water parade as Grand Marshal will be radio and TV host Javier Romero. Miami mayor Tomas Regalado will also attend.
