Date: Saturday, December 12, 2015
Admission: Free
Hours: 10am - 8pm: Day time activities. Parade starts at 7:00 p.m.
Address: Various Channel Islands Harbor locations

This time-honored tradition kicks off the holidays with a full day and evening of family fun, thousands of sparkling lights dancing on the water and the magical moment when Santa flies
across the sky marking the beginning of the parade. Children’s activities and artists market will take place at Marine Emporium Landing, meet Mr. & Mrs. Claus (12 pm - 4:30 pm), snowplay in the morning and strolling carolers (5:30 pm - 8:30 pm). Parade begins at 7 p.m. and can be viewed throughout the harbor. Waterfront viewing is available from some restaurants & boat charters.

Many harbor businesses have views overlooking the parade route, including:

The Lookout Bar & Grill
Moqueca Brazilian Cuisine
Sea Fresh Channel Islands
Toppers Pizza Place
The Waterside Restaurant and Wine Bar
Whale's Tail
