This annual tradition is a favorite among locals and many look forward to it all year. Parading along the coast line of the inlet as well as Balboa Island and Lido Isle, there are plenty of spots for you to get a good seat. The parade begins at 6:30 pm and lasts all the way to 9:00 pm. It is the highlight of the season and residents come from all over to get a glimpse at the magical show so expect a crowd. Bring some Christmas music, a blanket and some warm apple cider and kick back to boats of all shapes and sizes lit up in holiday cheer.

The parade route is located on the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade website. You are encouraged to bring your own lawn chair or other seating to get comfortable as you enjoy the festivities. This is the event of the season. Don’t miss out!
