2015 Theme Contest –  Who will be the big winner?

Have a great idea for a theme? The Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce is once again conducting a public contest to select the theme for this year’s Christmas Boat Parade. The author of the winning entry will win a free V.I.P. excursion for two on the official Santa boat for an evening during the parade. Themes should be concise and allow Parade and Ring of Lights entrants to decorate around. Entries can be sent to the Chamber via eMail to entries@christmasboatparade.comEntries are due by April 15, 2015  at noon.

Last year, over 100 themes were submitted.
