Every year, The American Legion Newport Harbor Post 291 celebrates the 4th of July with a Boat Parade. The event fills the harbor with of boats adorned in red-white-&-blue celebrating the time-honored Old Glory Boat Parade.
Every year you are in for a patriotic surprise as all kinds of boats try to outshine each other waiting for the loudest ovations from onlookers. The spirit of competition drives the participants to out-do themselves.
The Old Glory 4th of July Parade truly began very casually in the 50's as the "Character Boat Parade." As the years passed, the Newport Harbor Chamber of Commerce took the helm and built her into a grand parade. Today the American Legion Yacht Club hosts the boat parade.
