47. Venice Canals Holiday Boat Parade - 12/13

Here's another FREE romantic date idea for the holidays!
For the 28th Annual Holiday Boat Parade, decorated kayaks, row boats, canoes and whatever floats will be floating through the Venice Canals along Dell Avenue this Sunday, December 13th, 4-8 PM.

This boat parade starts earlier than most, which is perfect timing for enjoying the sunset! By the way, this is similar to the event at the Naples Canals in Long Beach next weekend (see Cheap Date Idea #23). Except the Venice Canals are supposed to emulate the famous canals of Venice, Italy. Ok, it's not Europe but at least you and your date can enjoy a romantic stroll here without the cost of 2 plane tickets!

I've personally...

never been here (yet, that is), but this photo makes me want to go! If only I can be in two places at the same time! This is the same evening as the Annual Holiday Fireworks Festival in Manhattan Beach (see Cheap Date Idea #21). I'll mark my calendar for next year, since Venice Beach usually holds it on the second Sunday of December. If you go (or have been), please do share!

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