The annual Marina del Rey boat parade is a spectacle of lights worthy of any photographer’s attention. Add in a sunset over the sea and a fireworks show to kick off the festivities and we really ramp up the opportunities to make some memorable photographs! So let’s MeetUp at 4:00 next to the ‘The Helmsman’ statue at the center of Burton Chace Park and see what digital damage we can do with our cameras.

Sunset happens at 4:45 and the fireworks begin at 5:55, which kicks off the boat parade. It will be a festive environment with lots of families, music, food trucks and other vendors. They are even trucking in real snow for the kids to play and sled in. Feel free to bring your own family along. For more info about all the festivities, check out


Things to consider:

-       The sky will be completely dark when the fireworks and parade happen so bring your tripod/monopod.

-       You may also want to bring a flash if you have one. 

-       A headlamp or flashlight might also come in handy

-       It will likely be quite chilly by the water so dress appropriately.

Parking is $8 at all of the lots throughout Marina Del Rey during the parade times.

Bring your friends and family, and let’s celebrate the arrival of the holiday season!

Happy Holidays and I look forward to seeing you out there!
