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. The decorations are incredible, and no detail is left overlooked. The yachts utilize generators to power the lights, and effects.

The Tournament of Roses 2015 Royal Court will dazzle one of the boats this year on the fourth night, Saturday, December 20 2014
