On December 16th and 17th, the Ventura Harbor will be filled with lights. This will be the 40th Ventura Harbor Parade of Lights. This year, the parade’s theme will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of our National Parks. You’ll be able to see historic sites and monuments from across the country all decorated in lights.
In addition to the parade, the two-day festival includes fireworks, carnival rides, a holiday marketplace, live reindeer, and more.
The parade will start at 6pm on Friday, December 16th and will make two rounds through Ventura Harbor. After the parade, around 8pm, the sky will light up with a fantastic firework display at the end of Spinnaker Drive.
On Saturday, come early to explore the Village’s Winter Wonderland and Holiday Marketplace. You can listen to carolers while you shop and even visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Saturday evening, the parade will start again at 6:30pm with Santa’s sleigh flying overhead. Santa will be available for photos until 7pm.
