Newport Lighted Boat Parade
December 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
The holiday season begins with Newport’s Annual Lighted Boat Parade, where the Yaquina Bay is illuminated by thousands of colored lights displayed from boats and vessels of all shapes and sizes. The Parade has steadily grown into a major winter event for both locals and visitors, and features over a dozen boats ranging in size from kayaks to the 75-foot OSU research vessel, the Pacific Storm and the 52-foot US Coast Guard motor lifeboat, the Victory. The lights are meticulously strung on all of the boats to provide an excellent show. The parade starts at dusk.
Watch the Parade from charter boats that are part of the event, or from the Noble Estate Newport tasting room deck and vantage points around the Yaquina Bay. For more information about charter boat tickets for the parade, contact Marine Discovery Tours at (541) 265-6200.
