Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade
The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade of Lights offers elaborate Christmas light displays on bayfront estates as well as hundreds of boats. The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is viewed by over 1.5 million people each season and is one of the largest boat parades you will likely ever see. Newport Harbor is alive with millions of holiday lights creating a one of a kind holiday experience that is a “must see” this holiday season.
The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is one of the largest holiday events in the country. Hundreds of decorated ships of all sizes compete for top awards in several categories. This year marks the 111th anniversary of the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. Each year ship owners up their game to put on the best light and animated displays possible. Below are some pictures of past winners of the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.
The amazing light displays of the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade are not limited to only the ships in the harbor. A second competition for the decorated homes called the Ring of Lights Competition encourages the owners of multi-million dollar estates to go all out. The Ring of Lights Competition coupled with the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade creates a completely immersive experience for all ages to enjoy.
