The Holidays are once again filled with magical events

Around 30 boats – from paddling to sailing – will take part in the annual parade of lights boat parade at Santa Barbara waterfront this weekend.

"It's a lot of fun," said Neil Bruskin, President of Stern’s Wharf Business Association.

Before the parade takes place from the east side of Sterns Wharf, a 25-foot green white fir tree will be lit up.

"We've got lights everywhere on the wharf and at the harbor they're bringing in snow for Santa. What more could you ask for?" he said.

The tree lighting is at 5 p.m. on Sunday, followed by the Parade of Lights at 5.30pm.

Parking is available on Stearns Wharf (if parked prior to 3:30 p.m.) as well as at the Chase Palm Park and Garden Street parking lots. The first 90-minutes of parking on the wharf is free.
