Parade Route and Schedule
As the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade moves it way through the Newport Harbor, you can view the parade from almost any place on the shore FREE of cost. With thousands of people viewing the parade each evening, please allow extra time for travel and arrive as early as possible. All city parking lots will be open throughout the parade to accommodate viewers.
The 2017 Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade will both commence and finish at the tip of Lido Isle. As in previous years, the parade will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. each night. The new start and end location will adjust previous pass-by times along the parade route by approximately 30 minutes.
