ABOUT Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade 2013
The Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce proudly hosts the 105th Year of this spectacular Holiday Tradition. Join over a million viewers that show up to watch beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes sail along the harbor in the 105th Annual Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade. Hosted by the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, you are invited to celebrate this year as we feature the theme "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree!"
As Newport Beach's Christmas Card to the world, the boat parade will set the harbor ablaze for five consecutive nights, beginning Wednesday, December 18 and ending Sunday, December 22, 2013. The parade starts off Bay Island at 5:30 pm and finishes at the same site at approximately 7 PM to 10 PM depending upon whether the evening lands on a weekday (7 PM) or weekend (10 PM).
On the final night of the parade, Sunday, December 22, a special fireworks display will close out the parade. Beginning at approximately 9:00 pm, the fireworks will be visible from all around the harbor, being launched from the Balboa Pier.
