 5:30 PM until 9:00 PM San Diego Bay

Hundreds of boats are decrorated for this dazzling holiday boat

Parade of Lights on San Diego Bay

San Diego is known as the city that loves the seaside owing the distinction to its great location of being near the Pacific Ocean.

 Thus yachting, fishing, and boating are prime activities that the city takes seriously.

 Another noticeable San Diego trait is its knack for entertainment

 and this is seen everyday in the various attractions and entertainment spots present in the city.

 Combine these two and you have the

 Parade of Lights.

 Join us for this San Diego Holiday Tradition!

Best Viewing

For boaters wishing to view the parade, a good viewing area is where the parade route turns for Coronado, near the 10th Street Terminal.

For those viewing on land, the north and south ends of the Embarcadero as well as the pathway along Coronado are good spots as they tend to be less crowed.

If you plan on viewing the parade from Harbor Island, get there early and be aware that parking is at a premium.

Another good spot is the park behind Seaport Village.

Approximate Times at Locations Around the Bay

The parade takes approximately one hour to one and a half hours to pass any given point along the parade route. The approximate arrival time of the parade at various locations are:

  • Shelter Island (start of parade) – 5:30 pm
  • Harbor Island – 6:00 pm
  • The Embarcadero – 6:30 pm
  • Seaport Village – 7:00 pm
  • Ferry Landing on Coronado – 7:30 pm

Parking

The San Diego Bay Parade of Lights
is seen by approximately 80,000 people every year.
As a result, parking will be limited in and around the Bay.
Attendees to the event are encouraged to utilize San Diego Public Transit,
such as the San Diego Trolley.
Stations with parking lots that provide convenient service
to the North Embarcadero area include Fashion Valley,
Old Town and America Plaza.
