Boater Registration is Open for 57th Annual Parade of Lights

Registration is open for boaters interested in participating in the Channel Islands Harbor’s 57th Annual Parade of Lights. “Santa’s Workshop Creates a Spark of Love” will be the title for this year’s parade. The title of the parade is meant to pay tribute to the “Spark of Love Toy Drive,” which provided toys to more than 30,000 youth in Ventura County last year. The Harbor will be hosting a food and toy drive the same day as the Parade of Lights, with proceeds benefiting the Spark of Love and FoodShare of Ventura County. Boater’s are encouraged to decorate their entries with a “Santa’s Workshop” theme.

The parade is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9, 2023.
