The best viewing is from Riviera Shores, Crown Point, Santa Clara Point, the east side of Vacation Island and west side of Fiesta Island. More than 60,000 people are expected at San Diego’s Mission Bay Park for the annual Mission Bay Christmas Parade of Lights. This free, distinctly California celebration features boats decorated for the holiday season that will sail around Mission Bay starting from the Quivira Basin area. A highly anticipated event in the San Diego community, more than 100 vessels take to the water for the parade.


All boat owners are encouraged to run up some lights and participate in the December 13, 2014 Mission Bay Parade of Lights around the bay. Any amount of lights will do - just one string will qualify you to enter the parade and be a part of this Mission Bay tradition. Invite family, friends, neighbors, other members to join you at the docks on Saturday evening for your party and parade. Be ready to line up for the parade start at 6 PM at the Chicken Cove. We will be escorted by SD Lifeguards and Agua Vida will lead the parade-"Big Santa" on Stern. To enter the parade and be a part of this Mission Bay tradition email Jason Proctor at manager@mbyc.org
