From December 18 – 22, there are more than 200 vessels

participating in this holiday celebration. Several

of these vessels will be decorated for the season,

playing music and displaying Christmas decorations

and costumed carolers. In the past, some yacht

owners have spent as much as 50,000 dollars in

decorations for their yacht.

Yachts and Watercraft

Over the course of 14 miles, the yachts and watercraft

will amaze the spectators. For more than 90 years,

the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade has dazzled

spectators and locals. All along the beach, the parade

provides views for restaurants, locals, private home

owners, and even those on public beaches.

Ring of Lights

Along with the private boats, many charter companies

offer the chance for parade goers to participate in

the parade and view the “Ring of Lights“, a group of

spectacular homes all around the harbor. The “Ring of

Lights” is a popular addition to the parade, with

prizes given for those who have the best decorations

on their homes.
