Lighting up the Holidays at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina

December 4, 2012

Plan to attend the annual Lighting of the Bay this Friday, December 7!
Newport Beach continues to light up the holidays with wonderful celebrations and traditions for everyone. This Friday, plan to attend the annual Lighting of the Bay at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina.  Starting at 6pm, you’ll enjoy special musical performances by the Orange County Song and Dance Company and the Corona Del Mar High School Choir, as well as food and drink by the award-winning Back Bay Bistro available for purchase. Kids of all ages will love the moment when Santa flips the switch to illuminate 50 electric “trees” that dot the Dunes bayfront!

Haven’t had a chance to get your Christmas Tree yet? No problem!  At the event, you can enter to win a tree in the raffle benefitting the Blind Children’s Learning Center, or take advantage of the onsite Christmas tree lot to select that just-right tree. Admission for this spectacular event is free; you can purchase a single raffle ticket for $1 or purchase 10 raffle tickets for $5.  Happy Holidays! For more information visit
