Whisper Parade of Lights

Quick Details

The 2022 event marks the 36th Annual Parade of Lights. Starting with fun for the entire family at Santa’s Village, the event culminates with a 5-minute fireworks display. The boat parade is preceded by Santa‚Äôs Village activities beginning at 3 p.m. on the City Pier in Santa Barbara Harbor (by the boats). Hundreds of families will come out to play in 10 tons of snow and take photos with Santa to get into the holiday spirit. The first 300 children receive free goody bags from Santa’s helpers!

Our 5:30 p.m. charter makes you part of the fun! The annual boat parade begins at 5:30 with approximately 30 boats motoring, sailing, and paddling the Santa Barbara Coastline. Judging takes place at Stearns Wharf and boats are awarded donated cash and prizes in five categories. The best viewing location is definitely from a boat on the water! Then visitors enjoy a fireworks show after the parade, ending their night with a bang – which you get to see from the boat!

Bring friends, family and loved ones (up to 6 passengers total) and have a winter night to remember!
