Balboa Island & Balboa are transformed into magical holiday landscape each holiday season. This year celebrates the 107th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Of Lights & Ring Of Lights celebrations. With over 100 years of history, the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is viewed by over a million people each year. Newport Bay comes alive with decorations for the boat parade and Ring Of Lights celebrations. Homes, yachts, docks whole landscapes are transformed into a magical holiday experience. Newport Beach begins its holiday decorations after Thanksgiving and by the first of December the harbor is richly illuminated with millions of lights and hundreds of themed estates. This year the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade takes place from Wednesday December 16-Sunday December 20.

Newport Landing provides 3 cruises each night of the parade and all of December to view the amazing light displays. Cruises during the parade travel in the parade and view both ships and estates in full décor. Cruises during the holiday lights cruises view all of the amazing light displays associated with the Ring Of Lights and Boat Parade celebrations cruising along miles of bay front estates and holiday landscapes. Also view many of the competing decorated ships that are in the parade. All of the cruises are onboard fully decorated ships.
