It’s that time of year again. Time for the 50th Annual Marina Del Rey Boat Parade. A tradition that started with a parade of only 20 boats (keep in mind there was only 100 boats in the whole Marina). The parade has become an annual holiday activity for thousands of Marina residents and has grown exponentially in popularity (and number of participants) over the years.
This year’s parade will take place on Saturday, December 14th (That’s this Saturday!!) and will start with Fireworks at 5:55 pm. The actual boat parade will start shortly thereafter at 6:00 pm and will last until 8:00 pm.
Each year there are two Grand Marshals who become the face of the parade. This year we will be a very special one, in that we have two very notable Marina/Playa residents who will take the reigns. Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss!
If you interested in participating in the parade or want more information with regards to the best viewing and parking spots you can find ample information on the Boat Parade Website
