Four decades worth of tribute bands, including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Heart, Journey, Depeche Mode, Morrissey/The Smiths, Oingo Boingo, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and U2 will jam on one of four live concert stages.

Live DJs will keep the dance floors hopping with today’s biggest party tracks and you can grab the mic yourself on a huge karaoke stage.  Yellow Cab is sponsoring the official “New Year’s Bash” Demolition Derby (so that’s where all the old taxicabs go!), and fifty of California’s favorite gourmet food trucks are set to feed the crowd.  At midnight, 12 “lucky” contest winners will ring in the New Year while riding the Super Shot Free Fall ride.

The OC Fair New Year’s Eve Block Party will be held on December 31, 2010 at the OC Fair & Events Center in Costa Mesa, California. There are several admission options available including combinations of Block Party, Demolition Derby, seating at certain events, special access to food trucks and even admission to next year’s OC Fair.

Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade 2010

The Newport 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. This traditional annual parade – now in its 102nd year – is a delight to visitors of all ages. The New York Times has named Newport Beach’s boat parade as “one of the top ten holiday happenings in the nation”.

In 2010, the parade will take place on five consecutive nights, from Wednesday, December 15 through Sunday, December 19, starting at 6:30 p.m. and ending at approximately 9:00 p.m. nightly. On the final night, there will be a spectacular fireworks display at 9 p.m.

To view the parade, you can reserve a table at one of many bayside restaurants (reserve way ahead!), or board one of the many charter cruise boats to see it up close (also reserve ahead), or simply stake out a comfy spot (with lots of blankets and hot chocolate) somewhere along the parade route. 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!

When you check-in at the Newport Channel Inn, our 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.

Newport Channel Inn’s boat parade room rates start from $69 Sunday through Thursday and from $79 Friday and Saturday. Room reservations can be made by calling us at 949 642-3030 or you can book your room on our website at http://www.newportchannelinn.com/.

This is an event you won’t want to miss. Tell your friends, family, and co-workers!
