Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade
Rated by The New York Times as one of the country's top Christmas happenings, this glittering event is a must see in The OC during the Christmas holidays. Local boat owners lavishly decorate their vessels, then join in a dazzling floating parade through the enormous Newport Harbour. Anything that floats is welcome to join—a fabulous mix of billionaire’s yachts, luxury sailing boats, day cruisers, and even decorated canoes and kayaks.
