Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, the County of Orange, OC Parks and Dana Point Harbor invite families to celebrate the season with “A Western Wonderland” at the 44th Annual Boat Parade of Lights. Enjoy festive family activities with a western twist on select dates December 7-15 by the water’s edge.


The 44th Annual Boat Parade of Lights will take place on December 7, 8, 14 and 15 and feature the theme “A Western Wonderland.” On each evening of the parade, OC Parks will host free family activities throughout Dana Point Harbor including games, crafts, live entertainment and selfies with Santa, all with a western twist. Festivities begin each day at 4:30 p.m. and the Boat Parade of Lights starts at 7:30 p.m.


“Dana Point Harbor will embrace the holiday spirit with western themed festivities and exciting entertainment during the 44th Annual Boat Parade of Lights,” Orange County Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, Fifth District, said. “Join us during A Western Wonderland and enjoy free, family-friendly activities while viewing the fantastic lights of the harbor before the start of the Boat Parade.”


Cowboys and cowgirls of all ages are encouraged to dress in their favorite western attire and watch as boats sail through the Harbor, showing off their country western themed decorations, animation, color and lights. Honorary ranch hands will be collecting unwrapped toy donations for Operation Santa Claus under the corridor of lights at the pergola. Donations will also be accepted at businesses throughout the harbor.


Free trolleys for each night of the Boat Parade will be running from 3:30 to 10:30 p.m. and will be dropping off and picking up along Dana Point Harbor Drive at Doheny State Beach, The Visitor’s Center, Ocean Institute, Baby Beach, Island Way, Retail Area and back to Doheny.
