The Newport Beach Boat Parade has a long tradition spanning over a century, from its relatively small scale beginnings to becoming one of the nation's largest holiday events. The Newport Beach Boat Parade wasn't always the giant holiday event it is known for today. The boat parade started out as a 4th of July celebration in Newport Bay back at the turn of the 20th century. The Newport Beach Boat Parade transformed from a 4th of July celebration into a Christmas time event in the 1920's and has continue to grow in spite of challenging times including such obstacles as the Great Depression to the more recent energy crisis of the early 70's. Today's Newport Beach Boat Parade is viewed by over 2 million people each year and has over 300 decorated ships of all of types participating along with hundreds of decorated bay front estates. The holiday season transforms Newport Bay into a most unique southern California holiday destination, a definite must see.
