PARADE OF LIGHTS WEATHER UPDATE: We have been monitoring the weather forecast and it appears as if the possible rain will not be significant enough to cancel the event. We hope to see you at the Harbor! 

The Channel Islands Harbor will kick off the holidays with its 56th annual holiday Parade of Lights. The theme is “Let It Glow.” Entrants are asked to decorate their vessels as bright as they can with a holiday twist. The parade starts at 7 p.m.

Boaters interested in participating and competing can download an entry form here.

Free Pics With Santa and 36 Tons of Snow!

Festivities at the Harbor begin at noon at Harbor View Park, just south of Marine Emporium Landing. Take your family and enjoy a variety of food options, a holiday artists’ market, live music, and children’s activities. There will be more than 36 tons of snow moved in for your family to play in. Plus, Santa will be there to take pictures, free of charge, with your children.
