“Seas the Holidays” at 107th Annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade for a beautiful display of decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes as they sail along the harbor.
The Christmas Boat Parade sets the harbor ablaze for five consecutive nights, beginning Wednesday, December 16 and ending Sunday, December 20, 2014. The parade starts off Bay Island at 6:30 pm and finishes at the same site at approximately 9:00 pm each evening.
Many of the boats will be richly decorated with animated Christmas scenes accompanied by music and costumed carolers. Some boat owners in the past have spent over $50,000 to decorate their vessels for the event. The Christmas floats will wind their way some 14 miles around the harbor to give viewers in restaurants, yacht clubs, on public beaches, and in private homes an incredible sight that has delighted millions of people for a century.
The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, has been hailed as “one of the top ten holiday happenings in the nation” by the New York Times.
We enjoy taking in the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade from inside Balboa Island. The property owners in Balboa Island decorate their homes, the streets and the docking slips to provide what’s referred to as the “Ring of Lights”,
Balboa Island comes alive with thousands of twinkling lights making the evening even more spectacular. We find a cozy spot on the waterfront, bring our dinner and get ready for the show.
