Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade 2013

The 105th annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade runs nightly from Wednesday December 18 through Sunday December 22, starting at 6:30 and ending about 9:00 each evening.  On the first night, there will be a finale of fireworks at the end of the parade.

Brightly decorated boats and yachts cruise the harbor past scores of houses along covered in lights.  See it up close on board one of several charter cruise boats or stake out a comfy spot (with lots of blankets and hot chocolate) on the shoreline and watch it pass.

The sidewalk around Balboa Island, allows viewing 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! 

The Newport 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

When you check-in at the Newport Channel Inn, the front desk staff will be happy to provide you with a map of the parade route showing the approximate times where the beginning of the parade will pass by dozens of viewing spots around the harbor. 

Happy Holidays!
