Naples Island 67th Annual Holiday Boat Parade This year’s theme is “Vintage Christmas.” Large boats start at 6:00 pm along the Peninsula. Small boats start at 6:45 pm from the Appian Way Bridge. Large and small boats will be traveling in opposite directions. The houses around Naples Island put on one of the best displays of Christmas lights in Southern California. There will also be three "groups of carolers" walking around the Island and singing holiday songs by the bridges. Plan to get there plenty early to stroll around the island before the parade.
