Annual Lighting of the Bay
The 32nd Annual Lighting of the Bay kicks off the holiday season at Newport Dunes, illuminating the bay each evening at dusk with more than 50 electric Christmas trees and holiday decorations.
Opening night festivities include live musical performances, stocking decorating, holiday photo booths, a holiday movie on the beach, festive food and beverages, and more. Santa takes center stage at dusk as he flips the magic switch to illuminate the bay with more than fifty floating holiday decorations and Christmas trees.
The resort’s nightly bay lighting lasts through New Year’s Day and is free to the public.
Fire pits for roasting s'mores are available on a first-come basis, and s'mores kits are available for purchase. On weekend evenings, cocktails and food are available for purchase from Moe B's Munchies.
The Newport Dunes Tree Lot is open with fresh Xmas trees onsite from November 22 through December 24.
Parking is $10 per vehicle.
