Check Out These Westside Holiday Boat Parades

The Halton Pardee family loves getting in the holiday spirit and this weekend is a great weekend to bundle up and head to the beach for a perfect So Cal holiday experience – Holiday Boat Parades! There are two great opportunities to experience the holiday magic! We hope to see you at one of them!

Marina del Rey Snow Wonder/Boat Parade

Burton Chace Park is transformed into a winter wonderland with tons of real snow and a sledding hill (sleds provided for your use). Also enjoy crafts, music, face painting, and food booths. The entire event is free, with food for purchase.

Watch a trail of lighted boats cruise through the main channel. Narration on a PA system is available at the two most popular viewing places, Burton Chace Park and Fisherman’s Village. For 2018, 4th District L.A. County Supervisor Janice Hahn serves as the Grand Marshall. This year’s parade theme is Winter Water Wonderland. The event is heavily attended and local parking lots fill quickly. We recommend arriving early in the day and enjoying activities and dining in the Marina while you wait for the start of the parade.

WHEN: Saturday, December 8 from 12:00-8:00pm
WHERE: Burrton Chace Park – 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292
