Naples Island Christmas Boat Parade, Long Beach
NAPLES BOAT PARADE – Watch the artful gondolier and local sailors with their decorated yachts cruise the islands of Naples, a section of Long Beach near 2nd Street and Bayshore. Time: Begins after dark, approx. 6 p.m.
Small Boat Parade begins near 2nd street bridge by the Long Beach Yacht Club. The boats travel counter clock wise around the islands and enter the interior Canal by the Colonnade. At that point they travel clockwise within the canal and then exit and travel back to the Long Beach Yacht Club.
Large Boat Parade starts at 6:30 pm. The boats travel in the main body of Alamitos Bay in a clockwise circle. You can’t see the parade from any restaurants, though the closest dining is probably at Alamitos Landing. Free public parking begins at 3 p.m. at the Marina Parking Lot next to Albertson’s off 2nd Street near Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, CA. Several groups of carolers wander around the islands by the bridges and sing to the audiences as an added bonus to the boat parade viewing.
Naples Island Boat ParadeMake sure you get to Naples Island early because all the streets will be blocked off and you will not be able to drive onto the island. If you have never been to the Christmas boat parade on Naples Island then you better make it down here this year. It is so much fun fo r the whole family. It is sponsored by the Naples Improvement Association and has long been a Naples Island tradition. Look at the beautiful homes and the decorations that everyone loves. During the weeks before and after the Christmas boat parade you can rent Duffy boats, Hydro Bikes and gondolas and cruise through the canals on your own. This is such a great place to live and enjoy the good life. If you or anyone you know would like information on real estate on the island please make sure you refer them to me.
