One of the most prime viewing locations of the Newport Beach Christmas Parade of Lights can be found at the Marina Park located at 1600 W. Balboa Boulevard in Newport Beach. There is lots of space for the children to run around as well as a nautical-themed playground and a beach. Every year on opening night, they always kick off the event with fireworks. Festivities will begin at 4:30 p.m. with family-friendly activities including face painters, caricature artists, LA Chargers football toss competition and food vendors. Come watch the fireworks at 6:15 pm while waiting for the parade to pass by around 6:45 pm. It can also be seen from some of the waterfront restaurants and around the 10.5-acre Marina Park. Onlookers will also be treated to a live musical performance by The Young Americans.
