    Join fellow alumni and friends for our 3rd annual holiday gathering! This year's Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade of Lights 2018 has it all. Elaborate Christmas light displays of Bayfront estates with their Ring of Lights competition and one of the largest decorated boat parades in the country. In its 110th year, the nation's longest running holiday boat parade attracts over a million visitors with boats and yachts that light up the bay along a 14-mile parade route through Newport Harbor. It's a festive experience unlike any other!  

    Registration includes warm beverages (non-alcoholic) and desserts aboard a decorated ship reserved just for our group. We set sail at 8:30pm, but strongly recommend arriving early with extra time to find parking, connect with friends, and enjoy the holiday lights.

    *Please make sure to dress appropriately as indoor seating is limited on the boat*
