Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade
December 4 @ 5:30 PM – 9:30 PM PST
Newport Harbor comes alive with holiday decor at the Newport Beach Christmas Boat parade; homes, yachts, docks, whole landscapes are transformed into a magical holiday experience. Newport Bay begins its holiday decorations after Thanksgiving and by the first of December Newport Harbor is richly illuminated with thousands of lights and hundreds of themed estates.
The Christmas Boat Parade takes place over five nights in December with three nightly departures. Hundreds of yachts, cruise ships, and water craft of all kinds participate in the parade. The parade will travel miles of waterfront estates during each evening viewing both estates and yachts in full décor.
Newport Landing has 5 ships that offer cruises during the entire month of December and participate in three cruises nightly during the parade. The unique experience of being on the water viewing what the New York Times stated as “one of the top 10 holiday happenings in the nation” will make a lasting memory for any holiday event.
