Save the Date for the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade!

October 18, 2012

Although it’s not yet Halloween, it’s time to start making your plans for the 104th Annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade!

This year’s parade is set a bit later in the season than usual – and will be held from December 19-23, 2012. But we recommend you contact your favorite waterfront restaurants and venues NOW to secure your spot for a festive office party, group gathering, family dinner, or romantic evening out.

Did you know that Yahoo! Travel and the New York Times both have named the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade one of the nation’s best holiday celebrations? You won’t want to miss this year’s event – themed “Surf, Sand, and Santa,” set to be a more magical spectacle than ever before with nearly 100 decorated and lighted boats participating.
