24. Newport Beach Boat Parade (12/16-12/20)

Yacht Christmas Tree
Originally uploaded by FrogMiller

The City of Newport Beach is throwing their 101st Christmas Boat Parade. This one is bigger than the one in Naples (see yesterday's post, Cheap Date Idea #23), but you can do both since Newport's is 5 days long, 12/16-12/20, running 6:30 - 9 PM every night (check online for the schedule and route) Newport Beach can get quite congested, so going during a weekday may be more enjoyable.

UPDATE 12/20: For the grand finale on Sunday, free fireworks go off at 9 PM near Balboa Pier.

Approximate cost of creative date idea = Free plus parking.
Actual value of the cheap date idea = Priceless.
