Mark your calendars! Two beloved boat parades are right around the corner.
The first event is the 51st Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade & Fireworks on Saturday, 12/14.
Fireworks go off at 5:55 pm and decorated boats start circling the harbor at 6 pm.
Boats circle the harbor three times, with the show ending at about 8 pm. If you want to be close to the action, the judges’ viewing stand and other activities are happening at Burton Chace Park.
The second event is the Venice Canals Association’s 32nd Holiday Board Parade on Sunday, 12/15.
Boats assemble at 4 pm and the parade starts at 4:30 at the corner of Eastern and Sherman Canals. Boats float the entire canal circuit and views are great anywhere along the route.
Kids love this event because they can get up close to the small boats in this parade.
