Venice's annual holiday boat parade on the canals caused enough of a stir to get the Travel Channel to feature it on their "Jingle Brawls" episode Dec. 8.

The beloved parade went one-on-one against a land boat parade in Villa Park, CA to compete for best off-beat Christmas boat parade. Online voters had until last Friday to determine which boat parade won.

The Venice Canals Holiday Boat Parade smashed the boat floats pulled on trailers, claiming 66 percent of the vote, as reported online by Travel Channel.

The 32nd annual Venice Canals Holiday Boat Parade was held Sunday. Email comments and photos from the parade to liz.spear@patch.com.

Did you attend last night's boat parade in Venice? Was it as much fun as everyone says it is? What was your favorite float or part of the festivities?
