Growing up in Newport Beach there was always one event that signified the holidays were upon us: The Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.
Held in mid-December each year, this community event involves a procession of festively lit boats around Newport Bay.
Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the boat parade from many different perspectives. From rooftop decks to restaurants, to being in the parade myself onboard a boat!
You can view the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade from these restaurants:
- The Lighthouse
- Newport Landing
- Waterline Newport Beach
- Rusty Pelican
- Malibu Farm Lido
No matter the venue, the holiday cheer, and beautiful lights are always amazing, with people coming…
