Newport Dunes Fire & Ice Festival

This winter holiday season Newport Dunes will light up the bay with fire, lights and ice. This will be the 33rd year hosting the Lighting of the Bay, with over 50 lights floating in the Back Bay. We’ve added one of OC’s largest ice rinks for people to come and ice skate along the water. Skate rentals and skate aids are available. Enjoy a hot chocolate or hot toddie at our rinkside Igloo bar – open Wednesdays – Sunday. Stroll through our inflatable garden and take photos with the various inflatables. Relax and enjoy the lights while roasting marshmallows for s’mores at one of our firepit tables. On weekend enjoy live entertainment including fire dancers & music. We’ll also have Holiday movies playing by the beach.

Tickets for 1.5 hour ice rink sessions can be purchased online.
