2021 Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Route

As the 113th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade moves its way through the Newport Harbor this December, the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade Committee, with the leadership of The Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, will continue with its parade route starting and ending point at Tip of Lido Isle. The parade will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. each night from December 15 – 19, 2021.

Parade participants will start from the east end of Lido Island following the celebrated route, with the first public viewing destination at the 10.5-acre Marina Park. The community park offers 177 parking spaces, nautical-themed playground, picnic area and sailing center, and is also the largest public viewing area along the parade route, creating an optimal location to gather and enjoy the festivities.

Residents and visitors will have optimal viewing of the beautifully decorated yachts, boats, kayaks and canoes sail in the parade from the Dine & Watch waterfront and Dine & Walk dining options within walking distance of the many public viewing spots.

Please reference the site map with times the parade passes various destination points.

Fireworks

On the opening night of the parade on Wednesday, December 15 at approximately 6:15 pm, a special opening fireworks display will take place off the Newport Pier to kick off the parade. Then, on the final night of the parade, Sunday, December 19, a special fireworks display will close out the parade from the Balboa Pier. Beginning at approximately 9:00 pm, the fireworks will be visible from all around the harbor.

Safety is always our most important concern. Fireworks will commence as long as it is safe to do so as determined by Federal, State and Local guidelines. Please check back for more updates.
