A parade of boaters lighted up Huntington Harbour on Saturday night as sailors took on a “Rock and Roll Fantasy” persona — the theme of the 57th annual Huntington Harbour Boat Parade.
The two-night event precedes the Cruise of Lights, a waterway tour of decorated homes that benefits the Philharmonic Society of Orange County’s music education programs. The Cruise of Lights runs Tuesday through Dec. 23.
The boat parade offers participants a chance to win 16 trophies in categories ranging from Most Religious to Best Commercial Entry.
The second night of the parade will begin at 5:15 p.m. on Sunday. Visitors are advised to arrive early to grab prime viewing spots at Seabridge Park and on the Huntington Harbour bridges.
