Where to see Christmas lights in Newport Beach?
Newport Beach is celebrating the holidays with beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes sailing along the harbor in its 114th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade.
This year’s parade will be held from December 14th through December 18th, 2022 hosted by the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce. The parade starts at Tip of Lido Isle at approximately 6:30 p.m. each night and ends at the same location.
The first public viewing destination is at the new 10.5-acre Marina Park, which offers 177 parking spaces, and is also the largest public viewing area along the parade route, creating an optimal location to gather and enjoy the festivities.
Also, from December 1st through January 3rd, you can experience the Newport Harbor in full holiday décor aboard one of the decorated vessels on a 75 minute holiday lights cruise. On your cruise, you get to view multi-million dollar estates and vessels all decked out with thousands of lights.
If you want to be a part of the Newport Beach Boat Parade, Davey's locker offers three 90 minutes of Christmas Boat Cruises every night of the parade.
We highly recommend buying your tickets early as the space is limited and the tickets are expected to sell out very fast this year!
