The holiday season in Marina del Rey will offer locals and visitors a festive atmosphere including the annual Marina Lights at Burton Chace Park and the annual New Year's Eve fireworks show. This year, the family-friendly GLOW party will liven up Burton Chace Park on New Year's Eve. And of course, the beloved Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade will bring joy to the waterfront. The public is invited to walk, bike or paddle throughout the harbor to see the boats decorated in holiday lights. Take a stroll and shop throughout Fisherman's Village, Boardwalk Shops, Waterside Shops and nightly twinkling holiday lights throughout December.
