2013 Lighted Boat Parade, Dec. 7th


Newport's much anticipated 2013 Lighted Boat Parade is happening Dec. 7th, 5:00p - 6:30p. Hosted by the Yaquina Bay Yacht Club for the 20th year, this annual nighttime boat parade is a non-profit event with proceeds going to a charitable organization.

This year's theme is "Magic of the Music". Donations will go to support CAN Cancer. The bulk of donations are generated through passenger ticket sales on board the Discovery. Tickets for seats aboard Discovery can be purchased through Marine Discovery Tours. If you know someone who'd like to enjoy this family friendly show from a perch aboard a comfortable charter vessel, please refer them to Marine Discovery Tours. Call 541-265-6200 for ticket and reservation information.

The in-kind contributions are used as thank you gifts and prizes to the participating boaters to show the appreciation for their hard work to create this spectacular light show. We depend on the generosity of our good neighbor businesses and individuals to complete this circle; if you own or know a business who would like to support this event, this is a great opportunity to help out.

Complete information and 2013 Boater's Registration can be found here.

See you all on the water!
