Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree | The Newport Beach Parade of Lights
The 105th Christmas Boat Parade which is hosted by the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce is going to be held from December 13, 2013, to December 22, 2013. Join the spectators as you view beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks, and canoes cruise along the Newport Beach Harbor.
Tomorrow night Wednesday, December 18 at approximately 6:20 pm, there will be a special opening fireworks display.
The Newport Beach Parade of Lights begins at 6:30 pm (following the fireworks display tomorrow night) right near Bay Island in Newport Beach and heads out towards the entrance to the Harbor, and then circles back around Balboa Island, down the main channel and around both sides of Lido Island. Below is a photo from a couple of years ago and the detail is incredible
There are many great locations to view this incredible event. If you have not seen the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, then I encourage you to visit.

This year’s theme for the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree! In addition to the boat parade, there is also the “Ring of Lights” which are the homes which decorate for the parade, and they are also amazing to see.
