The evening starts with fireworks at 5:55pm for the 55th iteration of the Marina del Rey holiday tradition. Prepare to be awed as spectacularly decorated boats light up the Marina's main harbor. This year's Grand Marshal is award-winning journalist Carol Costello.
Before the parade, families can enjoy Marina del Rey's free Snow Wonder event (from 12-6pm at Burton Chace Park), with real snow, sledding, arts & crafts, face painting, live DJ, food trucks, and more.
Best viewing is at the end of Burton Chace Park or at Fisherman's Village. Parking is available in county lots for this event.
