Holiday Boat Parade

Christmas Boat Parade

December 04, 2017

Nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a parade. And nothing says “Have a SoCal Happy Holidays” like a Christmas Boat Parade! You’re here in Southern California, why not get in the spirit of things at the Newport Christmas Boat Parade. The parade runs from December 13-17. It begins at 6:30 p.m. With different locations around the “Ring of Lights” route, you’ll be sure to leave singing holiday tunes and ready for a visit from jolly Saint Nick. Not only are the boats beautifully decorated, but the homes along the route are too. You’ll see a wide gamut: yachts, boats, kayaks, and canoes decorated in holiday lights. For some extra pizazz, check out the opening and closing nights of the parade for a fireworks extravaganza. The fireworks begin at 9 and are visible from all across the harbor. Best of all, this event is free! For more information on parking and the best viewing locations click here.

    • “Walking distance to Disneyland”
      Very friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast, excellent value for money. We stayed here for 6 nights and really can't fault the place. We wanted a place close to Disneyland without costing a fortune and were very happy with Cortona Inn and Suites.

    • "Great place to stay if you are going to Disneyland"
      Rooms were rather nice. Housekeeping were wonderful! They always did little special things for us and our children while we were out. Management were so nice and helpful. There is a delicious continental breakfast every morning. They even have a convenient gift shop right in the lobby. We will definitely be returning!
    • “Great value”
      This hotel is a great value for the quality of rooms they have. They're clean, updated and very comfortable. The beds were super comfy as well and compared to other hotels we've stayed at in the area, this takes top notch. I would absolutely recommend anyone to stay here. We will definitely be staying here again!

    • “Will definitely stay again!”
      My family and I stayed at Cortona for the weekend. The hotel is not far from Disney which was super convenient! The beds were so comfy, the staff was awesome and it was very quiet. I will definitely book here again for my next Disney trip!
