Shores Lifestyle Bonus: The MDR Holiday Boat Parade


Shores residents really have it made in the holiday department. Not only do we have gorgeous apartments that we can easily bedazzle with glittering trees, garland and mistletoe, but we live in a community that’s close to all of the best holiday happenings in Marina del Rey. That includes the biggest Marina-exclusive celebration around—the spectacular 51st annual Boat Parade aptly named “Holiday Magic.”

If this is your first MDR boat parade, you’re in for a real treat because this year’s event promises to be unforgettable. The Grand Marshals of the event are none other than the Zen Master himself—Phil Jackson, along with his wife, Jeanie Buss. Aside from that thrill, there will also be fireworks, followed by a stunning parade of festively decorated boats.

One of the best spots to catch the parade is at Burton Chace Park or you could make a reservation at one of the great waterfront restaurants like Café del Rey, Whiskey Red’s or Sapori Italian Restaurant and view the festivities over dinner. The beauty of living at Shores is that we’re within a couple of miles of every viewing option!
