San Diego Bay Parade of Lights — The first parade this season was tonight and the second will be next Sunday December 20th.
The 38th annual San Diego Bay Parade of Lights. Kicking-off with a fireworks extravaganza at 5:30 p.m., this free, distinctly-California celebration features boats decorated for the holiday season that will sail from the east end of Shelter Island into the downtown waterfront and Coronado areas. (see parade route below)
This year’s parade celebrates “Christmas at the Zoo” with boats of all kinds judged for creative lighting, decorations and crowd-engaging fun. A highly anticipated event in the San Diego community, more than 80 vessels take to the water for the parade.
