The Newport Harbor Parade of Lights. For 5 nights in December the most beautifully decorated yachts will parade through the harbor competing for the best in show in a variety of categories, as well as a competition for the over-the-top decorated homes that grace the waterfront. This tradition has been named one of the top ten “Holiday Happenings” in the nation. Fear not if you can’t make it during the five days of the parade, the boats and homes are decorated the entire month of December! A holiday cruise is a great way to celebrate with Co-Workers, Family & Friends. Your guest will be treated to an experience that cannot be compared to any Hotel Ballroom or Restaurant around.
