Of all the things that people expect to see during the Christmas season, two of them are lights and decorations. You could get the whole family in the car and drive around looking for homes that are decked out. Alternatively, you could see a breathtaking event with hundreds of boats, homes, and docks all offering extravagant displays. That’s what you will find at the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. This parade is nothing ordinary either. In fact, you can expect to see more than 100 boats and yachts with displays you would only expect to see on television.Boat owners spend tens of thousands of dollars on their displays, which include millions of lights, special effects, and more. It’s certainly a Christmas spectacular that will leave any other event in the shadows.

The Tradition: Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade

Newport Beach Christmas Boat 1

The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade has been a long-standing tradition dating back more than a century. In fact, the 2021 holiday season will mark the 113th year for the event.

Back in the early days, however, the only participants were a dozen or so boats with meager decorations. That certainly has changed, and the scope of the display has grown along with the number of spectators.
Not only are there hundreds of boats with beautiful lights and displays, but the homes along the shore will also have lights, special effects, and more all on the property, including the dock.

The Event: Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade

So, if you want to enjoy the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, you need to schedule a time between the third Wednesday and third Sunday of December. The parade is put on for five whole nights so that anyone can enjoy it.
You also have different options for enjoying the event. Of course, you could try to watch from the shore, but you certainly won’t be able to see everything. You could, instead, enjoy a Newport Beach Boat Parade holiday cruise that allows you to be right in the middle of the action. Just close your eyes and imagine standing on the deck of a boat, seeing the beautiful boats and yachts float by, and looking at the shoreline at thousands and thousands of dazzling Christmas lights.
Now, imagine being on that boat on closing day and seeing the finale fireworks as they burst into color over the water. It can all be something you enjoy if you choose a boat parade cruise through Davey’s Locker. Three cruises are offered each of the five nights of the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade so that you will be able to enjoy a truly unforgettable experience. Davey’s Locker doesn’t just stop there either. Throughout the month of December, Davey’s Locker offers holiday cruises for you and the whole family to enjoy. You can choose from different cruise options too, like a private boat for you and your loved ones to have your own event, or a general admission holiday cruise. You can plan your event in a way that will work for you and it will be an event that none of your family will forget.
