Balboa Island Christmas Boat Parade Of Lights 2013 is the premier Christmas event not only for Orange County and Los Angeles but Southern California. Celebrating its 105th year, the Balboa Island Christmas Boat Parade is viewed by over one & half million people each year. Newport Bay comes alive with decorations for the boat parade. Homes, yachts, docks whole landscapes are fully decorated and transformed into a magical holiday experience. Balboa Island begins its holiday decorations after Thanksgiving and by the first of December the bay is richly illuminated with thousands of lights and hundreds of themed estates.

Newport Landing provides three general admission cruises each night of the parade.. Each of our ships are fully decorated and travel in the parade during each night of the parade. Can’t make the parade nights not to worry Newport Landing has holiday cruises every night in December with several times to choose from. View the amazing light displays and many of the ships that are entered in the parade as they travel through the bay.

Along with general admission cruises Newport Landing offers private rentals throughout the month including each night of the parade. Private rentals are a favorite for holiday parties, company Christmas parties, and other holiday celebration
