December 13th through the 18th, the 109th annual Newport Beach Boat Parade commenced. Taking place in the Newport Harbor Bay, boats of all shapes and sizes paraded around the islands showcasing their Christmas spirit. Sailboats along with motor boats spend possibly weeks preparing their boats for the show. Locals will recognize some of the boats that come around every year. During this time of year, Balboa Island especially becomes extremely crowded with almost no parking as many people walk around spectating the parade. People also watch the parade from the various yachts club around the bay, from their homes, or anywhere they can get a glimpse of the decorated boats Each year awards are given to some of the boats including Most Religious and Best Music. This year there were two boats with live bands, some boats with the lights pulsing to the music, and even one boat was playing the movie Elf. When asked his opinion on the Boat Parade sophomore Josh Halafuka commented, “I always enjoy watching the boat parade every year. I love all the light and colors on each boat.”
