Today’s Holiday: Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade

Today’s Holiday:
Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade

The Newport Harbor Christmas Boat Parade is a nightly parade of boats at Newport Beach, California. More than 150 boats of all kinds, wildly decorated with lights depicting Santa Claus, snowmen, and other symbols of winter, join the parade. Some boats carry huge inflated figures and many play music. The floating parades started in 1908 as a Fourth of July spectacular.
