Boat Parade

Posted on: December 19, 2011

We went to the Newport Beach Boat Parade last Friday and it was crazy. This is probably our fourth year going and every year the lights and decorations get better and better. Plus Balboa Island is so cute and the houses are amazing. We had a bunch of friends met us this year which was fun but did caused a little bit of a cluster. Trying to get fifteen people to dinner on Balboa Island during the boat parade is an impossible feat; due to the parking and traffic. Once the food situation was over and we got to the board walk we had a great time.

The boats didn’t disappoint.

The pirate boat was the best!

The house decorations weren’t bad either.

The great thing about the boat parade is that it’s free. No need to buy seats in the reserved area. We just pulled up a wall on the boardwalk and made our selves comfortable.

The kids got some beach sand time which kept them entertained for most of the time.

Overall it was a great family Christmas time.

See you next year!
