The best place to see the annual Parade of Lights on San Diego Bay is from the historic ferryboat Berkeley at the Maritime Museum of San Diego.

The parade judges are stationed aboard the steam yacht Medea and the brightly decorated boats pull out all the stops when they pass by. Enjoy a delicious holiday buffet and a no-host bar from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Sunday evening, December 13 or 20.

Tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for children ages 3-12 and can be purchased online through the museum’s website at or by calling 619-234-9153 ext 106.

Children under 5 are free. Tickets to the buffet and parade include museum admission so come early. Guests who only want to watch the parade can do so for $10 by purchasing museum admission after 6pm. Please bring a new, unwrapped toy for the Toys for Tots program.
