Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade 2012, December 19 - 23
Christmas in Newport Beach quite like the annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat
Parade. This year's theme is "Surf, Sand, and Santa". Come join us for this
traditional annual parade – now in its 104nd year.
Beach Christmas Boat Parade offers a dazzling array of holiday lights, on both the
massive line of brightly decorated boats and yachts wending their way through
the harbor and on the countless elaborately adorned houses along on the
shoreline. The parade runs nightly from
Wednesday December 19 through Sunday December 23, starting at 6:30 and ending
about 9:00 each evening. On the final
night, there will be a finale of fireworks at the end of the parade.
To view the
parade, you can simply stake out a comfy spot (with lots of blankets and hot
chocolate) somewhere along the parade route, or board one of the many charter
cruise boats to see it up close (reserve ahead), or reserve a table at one of
many bayside restaurants (reserve way ahead!).
One of our favorite places is along the sidewalk around Balboa Island,
where you can see the parade coming and going multiple times and you can stroll
along and view the decorated homes and listen to the carolers and performers
along the way. Be sure to arrive very
early to secure parking and a prime vantage point!
Channel Inn’s Boat Parade room rates are about the best value you can find! Room reservations can be made by calling 949
642-3030 or you can book your room on www.newportchannelinn.com.
