Cruise of Lights
The annual Huntington Harbour Cruise of Lights rings in the season with its annual inverse boat parade in which the boat sails past an array of fully decked out and impressive homes in the harbor.
While the lights can be seen without setting sail, the best way to see them is definitely from the gentle boat ride gliding past.
Cruises depart every hour on the half hour, 5:30pm-8:30pm; advance reservations are required and can be made by phone or online. Note that all proceeds from the annual event go to Youth Music Education Programs.
Dec 17 is Santa Value Night; the ride features caroling, a visit with Santa, and a special gift for all children.
