FAMILY FUN KICKS OFF THE 2017 NEWPORT BEACH CHRISTMAS BOAT PARADE AT MARINA PARK

*Cue music*
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
Take a look in the Newport Bay for a one-of-a-kind display
With boats and houses all aglow!

One of the most prime viewing locations can be found at the fabulous Marina Park located at 1600 W. Balboa Boulevard. Boasting a nautical-themed playground and ample “run around” area for the kids, this is the perfect viewing spot for families.

On opening night of the parade, the park will also have special activities, food vendors and entertainment. To get everyone in the holiday spirit there will be an appearance by the Los Angeles Charger Cheerleaders from 5 – 6pm and a performance by Orange County School of the Arts Performance Ambassadors, MONTAGE!.

Additionally, there will be a special appearance by the Charger Cirls; a Los Angeles Chargers football toss area; photo opportunities with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and the beloved Chik-fil-A cows; face painters; caricature artists; festive food vendors; and more.

Marina Park will also be the perfect spot to watch the opening night fireworks show off the Balboa Pier at 6:15pm while waiting for the parade to pass by around 6:45pm.

We hope you’ve marked your (advent) calendar for this brilliant event and we’ll see you there!
