The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Is Here

The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Is Here

Once called the “Tournament of Lights,” the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is back for its 108th year this weekend.

Christmas At The Beach

Newport Beach, known for its picturesque sand, surf and iconic Balboa Island, lights up for five days in December with a parade of over 100+ boats. Yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes are invited to participate in the event, showcasing holiday creativity beyond your average twinkle lights. Winners are selected in categories such as “Animation and Special Effects,” “Humor and Originality,” “Best Sailboat,” and more. Parade entrants do not mess around!
