One of our favorite Orange County events during the holidays is the festive boat parades, including the Dana Point Boat Parade of Lights in Dana Point Harbor. It’s free to watch the boat parade from the shore. And we like it even better when we can pilfer a pair of cheap tickets to watch it from a boat (only $14.50).
Your admission tickets include holiday music, a cash bar, an up-close look at all the boats participating in the parade, and beautiful harbor views. The cruise is family friendly and kids can vote for their favorite decorated vessel and win big prizes.
