The traditional Huntington Christmas / Thanksgiving Boat Parade has been moved up this year to Saturday, November 9th at 6:00 PM.
The parade features local boats festooned with Christmas lights, Reindeer displays and sometimes even an early visit by Santa Claus. The 2019 theme will be ‘Rock and Roll Fantasy’.
The Huntington Harbour Boat Parade is sponsored by the non-profit Huntington Harbour Philharmonic Commitee, which hosts an annual “Cruise of Lights” fundraiser on December 17-23, to raise funds for youth music education programs.
Unlike many other boat parades, the Huntington Harbor Boat Parade is not produced or managed by a marina company, City, or Chamber of Commerce. It is an entirely volunteer effort.
Please note: public viewing areas at the beaches fill up quickly with very limited parking. Dress warmly.
One of the best ways to see it is to be in it by entering your boat!
