Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade – 2010
The Newport Beach holiday boat parade of lights is going to begin this week on December 15 to December 19, 2010. Hosted by the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, this is an event not to be missed.
The theme for this year’s holiday boat parade is “Lights, Camera…Christmas in Newport Beach!”
The boat parade starts off at Bay Island in Newport Beach promptly at 6:30 pm, and ends in the same area at approximately 9:00 pm. Many of the multi-million dollar yachts are decorated with an incredible light display. In the past, some of the participants have spent as much as $50,000 to decorate their yachts.
There are many locations to view the boat parade in Newport Beach, including the Balboa Bay Club, Billy’s at the Beach, Villa Nova, Chart House, and Rusty Pelican to name a few. Also, on the Balboa Peninsula, you can also view the parade from several bayside beaches. Make sure you dress warmly, as it can be a chilly evening.
Hope to see you at the 102nd Annual Holiday Boat Parade in Newport Beach.
