The 2010 Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade is held from December 15 through December 19. The parade begins each evening at 6:30. Arrive early for best parking and viewing areas. Starting point for the parade is at Bay Island, the boats then cruise out to the jetty and turn around at Pirate's Cove. Heading back into the harbor the parade route follows the south shore of the harbor circling Balboa Island Harbor Island and Lido Isle. The Christmas Boat Parade announcer's booth is located in the Balboa Fun Zone. There is a large parking lot next to the Balboa Pier and plenty of restaurants nearby.
