Approximately 25,000 people view the Marina del Rey Boat Parade each year.
Many enjoy the festivities from popular viewing spots like Fisherman’s Village or Burton Chace Park, while others enjoy the view of the parade from a water front restaurant, their balcony at home or from the comfort of their hotel room. The boat parade continues to be a favorite community event that kicks off the holiday season in Marina del Rey.

Holiday Boat Parade Program

The Argonaut Newspaper annual Holiday Boat Parade issue, December 7, will include the Parade’s official program, grand marshall, parking and viewing spots, boat preparation and more. The Argonaut will be available at the Visitor Information Center on Admiralty Way and Mindanao, at the Burton Chace Park Community Room, and at 800 locations all over the Coastal Los Angeles Westside.
