The 111th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade will run from 18th – 22nd, 2019 in Newport Beach!

Park at Newport Dunes and walk to Balboa Island for great viewing.

Coordinated by the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Committee, which is guided by the leadership of The Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, this year’s parade will both commence and finish at the tip of Lido Isle. As in previous years, the parade will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. each night.

Each year the beloved holiday tradition lights up the harbor and draws holiday enthusiasts from across the region. Residents and visitors can enjoy the spectacle from a variety of public viewing locations including the new 10.5-acre Marina Park, which offers 177 parking spaces, nautical-themed playground, picnic area and sailing center, and is also the largest public viewing area along the parade route. Another favorite option to see the beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks, and canoes are the numerous Dine & Watch waterfront restaurants or Dine & Walk from one of the harbor-adjacent restaurants to one of the convenient viewing spots.

On Wednesday, 18 locals and visitors alike can enjoy the spectacle from a variety of public viewing locations including numerous waterfront restaurants and the 10.5-acre Marina Park. Festivities will begin in Marina Park at 4:30 p.m., with family-friendly activities including face painters, caricature artists, and food vendors.   On opening night, the parade will commence with a spectacular fireworks display at approximately 6:15 p.m. from Newport Pier.
