2019 Grand Marshal



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.
