“The Boat Parade is Newport Beach, California’s Christmas Card to the world,” says Richard Luehrs, President & CEO of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce, and organizer of the event. “Since its inception in 1908 when the first ‘tournament of Lights’ was established by Italian Gondolier John Scarpa. “The parade continues to be a premier event during the holiday season in Southern California and is truly a magical holiday tradition for all ages.”
