Let's go watch the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade,munch,bonfire­,socialize.

  • This location is shown only to members

My friend (Mohammed) and I decided to go watch the Christmas Boat Parade with a few friends, but decided to extend the invitation to the meetup. We'll be enjoying the night seeing the boat parade while sitting on bonfire, eating munchies (smurf time) and socializing. This will be my first time doing this, so if anyone has been here before, by all means enlightened me.

We'll be meeting down on the beach, but this address is the closest I could find to track on a Navigator for you guys. My number is (714)[masked]

I'll be bringing firewood and oil for the bonfire, feel free to contribute with some munchies or drinks and ice etc. Go ahed and post what you will be bringing for others.

    Thank you so much to everyone who came for supporting this meetup- my first meetup, and helping with the resources. While the fire seemed dim at first, it lited my smile after a while and I personally enjoyed all of your company. Thanks and happy Holiday, everyone.

  • Joseph

    Heading out to buy wood, and check location. Should be there around 6pm-6:30. See you all soon.

    So far, we got the food, the wood/oil, only thing we're lacking is plastic cups and ice with beverage (coke/water). I will provide with a beach cooler.

    Thanks

    December 20, 2013

    • Joseph

      That would be awesome. Thanks man! I'll have the beach cooler.

    I just went on the boat trip today, Friday. It was nice. It lasted 1 hour and 30 m. My advice is to get a beanie , some gloves and nice shoes. The Boat has hot cocoa, chairs, indoors, 2nd floor and it's pretty nice. It goes around and there is a decent amount of houses lit on. I enjoyed it and would recommend it at least once. Anyone interested in it, let me know tomorrow at bon fire, and I can help people find the ticket facility. See you guys tomorrow! PS, Ill be arriving 1 hour early at the site of meeting to make sure everything is ok and is the right place as well as greet everyone coming :). Happy holidays.

    Here is where you can buy the tickets for the boat trip (optional) PS, the tickets most be bought before Thursday, apparently, says the website.

    https://www.goldstar.com/events/newport-beach-ca/post-christmas-boat-parade-cruise

    There is one issue though. The address for this is: 309 Palm Street Suite A Newport Beach CA 92661

    It's a bit of a trip to drive all the way there from where we will currently will have our bon fire at Corona Del Mar. I found a place with bon fire rings near it, however, it does not has a view of the ships, which is sort of the point of the Bon fire, to see the ships. (balboa Pier)

    If anyone knows a closer place with rings, and near the ships, feel free to correct me. Other than that, my plan is to have the bon fire, and around 9pm, begin driving to the spot to pick up the tickets and get on the boat. Again ,this is optional and do not need to go on the boat trip to come enjoy the bon fire :).

    Thanks

      I was going to call again today but some of my friends already booked it on Friday and cannot make it on Saturday. So I will be going on the boat ride at 10pm, Friday, and will do the bonfire on Saturday as the meetup says. Sorry guys. Anyone is welcome to join me on Friday, if cannot make it on Saturday but are interested as well and do not want to go by themselves. Sorry for the misunderstanding and thank you.

    Guys, Mohammed also found out we can board the boats around 10pm and go for a trip. However, it's around 9 bucks plus tax for a ticket for that. (This is optional)

    Here is the link. Thoughts?

      So will this cruise allow us to see that famous Boat Parade of Lights?

      December 15, 2013

    • Joseph

      Well be at bon fire as the boats pass by at 7pm. At 10, if we buy tickets, we can go on one of the boats. I'm not sure if there will still be a lot of othet boats going around since this is my first time, too. I'll give them a call tomorrow and get more info
