This year marks the 38th Annual Boat Parade of Lights with the theme: “LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION – A HOLLYWOOD HOLIDAY.”
Boaters from all around Orange County decorate their boats and vie for the awards of Judges Choice, Best Theme, Best Use of Lights, Best Animation, Most Colorful, Most Original, Best Sailboat, Best Powerboat and the Perpetual Trophy for the Yacht Club with the Most Entries.
Last year, Disco was King, but this year everyone will be a star. Dana Point and the harbor have been scene stealers on a couple of major motion pictures in the past and we know this event will be no different.
Boaters and non-boaters are invited to come on down and see the boats as they parade down the ‘blue’ carpet for four nights. The community event is: Dec. 7, 8 and 14, 15 at 7:30 p.m in the harbor.
Be part of the parade and enter your own boat, contact 949) 923-2255 or pick up an entry form at Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching or go online at danapointharbor.com.
You can view the parade FREE from anywhere in the harbor, or make reservations at one of the restaurants to view it from a cozy and warm spot. Come on down and enjoy the sights and sounds of the season.
Dana Point harbor is at 34555 Golden Lantern, Dana Point Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching offers boat rides so you, too, can experience the fun of actually riding on a boat and joining in the parade if you don't own a boat. The boat is located at Dana Wharf docks, 34675 Golden Lantern, Dana Point.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children. Kids will be able to participate in the judging of the Dana Wharf Kid’s Cup Trophy.
