San Diego Bay lights up for 40th annual Parade of Lights

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego Bay will be sparking with boats of all kinds lighted up for the 40th annual Parade of Lights Sunday.

The theme this year is "Back to the Future." 

Boaters participating in the parade are urged to use their seamanship skills and monitor VHF 16.

The free event, to be held again next Sunday, features more than 80 boats decorated for the holidays parading along the waterfront from Shelter Island to the Coronado Ferry Landing.

Port of San Diego officials said the best viewing locations should be near Shelter Island, Harbor Island, the Port Pavilion, Seaport Village, Embarcadero Marina Park and Coronado landing.

The event will take place from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m.

Members of U.S. Coast Guard will enforce a boater safety zone within 150 yards of the parade route until at least 8:30 p.m.

Port officials said mariners who want to watch the show from their vessels should be clear of their marina by 5 p.m.
