You may be surprised to find that the Golden State has just as much holiday spirit as any and we know how to do it big! Come explore some of the wonderful Christmas decorations with us.
Mission Inn Festival of Lights

Chill Ice Kingdom at the Queen Mary
A whole kingdom of ice! Beautiful ice sculptures, wonderfully laid out designs of fanciful settings like Fairytale kingdoms, Santa’s Toyland and an Ice Cave to explore. The North Pole has certainly arrived in sunny California. The entire family will enjoy this wonderful, handmade sculpture. It’s also interactive, you can take pictures of the grandkids coming down the ice slide! They won’t mind if you don’t get the shot, they can ride again!
Newport Boat Parade
Beautiful multi-million dollar yachts, kayaks, canoes and other small boats will light up the harbor as a dazzling array of holiday lights and music fill the air at the Christmas Boat Parade. Many of the boats will be richly decorated with animated Christmas scenes accompanied by music and costumed carolers. Some boat owners in the past have spent over $50,000 to decorate their vessels for the event. The Christmas floats will wind their way some 14 miles around the harbor to give viewers in restaurants, yacht clubs, on public beaches, and in private homes an incredible sight that has delighted millions of people for a century.
