OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM
THE NEWPORT BEACH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
112th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is canceled
Marie Case, Skipper of the Commodores Club, stated, “We want to thank all of those boaters who have signed up for the Parade and the Boat Parade Committee volunteers for all the time and effort they have already invested in this year’s Parade. The spirit of our Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade tradition will be felt this year as lights shine for the holiday season around the harbor and will shine even more brightly in 2021.”
ENTER YOUR HOME FOR THE RING OF LIGHTS!
In addition to the beautiful boats sailing through the harbor, all waterfront homes, businesses and yacht clubs are encouraged to participate in the “Ring of Lights.” In past years, many homes, businesses and yacht clubs have gone to great extents to decorate their properties and add to the festive feel of the boat parade.
Hosted by the Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, all homes, businesses, and yacht clubs lining the harbor are invited to enter. With its own judged categories and prizes awarded, the Ring of Lights has become as celebrated as the boat parade itself. In addition for the chance to win an award, registrants have a chance to appear in the live broadcast of the parade.
For specific entry questions, please call the Chamber at (949) 729-4400.
Entry fee is $35.
Boat Launching and Guest Slips
The Newport Dunes Resort is Orange County’s premier boat launch facility, featuring a seven lane boat launch ramp at the north end of the resort, located next to the Back Bay Bistro. If you can’t – or don’t – want to launch the boat yourself, allow our expert staff to lessen the stress of launch and recovery.
Our custom vehicle ramp has been designed to speed up the launch process, allowing you and your guests to get right to the day’s activities. The marina staff can be reached at (949) 729-1100 or visit their web page at http://www.newportdunes.com
