The annual boat parade kicks off the holidays in Ventura Harbor. The two-day celebration includes a Winter Wonderland Marketplace in the Village, with Santa & Mrs. Claus, reindeer, and faux snow. Note that this year there are no fireworks, as the region recovers from the Thomas fire.
The boat parade is at 6:30pm both nights.
Carnival events run from 5pm on Friday, and from 11am-9pm on Saturday. The Winter Wonderland Marketplace runs 1pm-5pm on Saturday.
Parking is free, and additional free parking is available along Spinnaker Drive and Harbor Cove Beach.
