One of the most popular San Diego holiday events is the annual Parade of Lights, a procession of colorfully lit ships along the bay. Now in its 44th year, the show will take place on consecutive Sunday nights, December 14 and 21. There are two ways to enjoy the Parade of Lights, San Diego's beloved holiday tradition:
* Watch the parade on board the Berkeley steam ferry and enjoy a holiday-themed dinner throughout the night. The Berkeley is the judging platform for the lights competition, and this VIP experience is an excellent way to see the show.
* Purchase general admission tickets for access to the floating pier to watch the parade. You'll also find a cash bar on the pier, a convenient open-air location where you can see the ships sail by.
Tickets for the Parade of Lights will be available soon via the Maritime Museum. All tickets include entry to the Maritime Museum before or during the event, which features a historic collection of ships.
