Check it!


The Marina Del Rey Boat Parade is back for 2015 for their 53rd annual affair taking place this Saturday, December 12.

This season’s special theme is “Adventure on the The Sea” and will feature some 70 competitors entertaining onlookers and vying for bragging rights in categories such as best animation, best lights, best band, best overall, and more!

A Winter Wonder event in Burton Chace Park precedes the parade from 1:00pm to 5:00pm and there will be a fireworks show at 5:55pm to kicks things off, with the parade starting at 6:00pm and running until 8:00pm.

Check out a quick look at last year’s parade below (with a recap on details after the jump):
