The City’s annual Holiday Parade will set sail tonight on Wednesday, December 14 at 7 p.m. and will feature decorated floats and other entries with a nautical theme. SpongeBob SquarePants will be appearing courtesy of Nickelodeon and Advanced Cable Communications. The floats will proceed along Sample Road from Coral Springs Drive to City Hall.
