Holiday Magic Marina del Rey 51st Boat Parade
There was a touch of magic in the air as lights glistened on the water at the Marina Del Rey Annual Boat Parade on Saturday night! It was a star studded event with Jeanie Buss and Phil Jackson serving as the Grand Marshals.
We had so much fun catering for the attendees on the Grand Marshall's boat (see the menu below).
This annual event has attracted thousands from all over Southern California for 51 years! When the parade began in 1963, there were only 100 boats in the marina; there are over 6 thousand today!
