This weekend we celebrated the holidays at the Newport Dunes Lighting of the Bay. Newport Dunes is one of our favorite summer hang-outs, and it is fun to return for some winter fun during the holidays. This year, Newport Dunes did an even more elaborate presentation than any year in the past with Santa cruising in via a paddle board.
The evening started out with local kids singing all our favorite holiday songs. They even tossed snowballs and coal into the audience with our little buddy Wes catching one.
Then the lights focused on the bay where Santa came paddling in on a Stand-up Paddle Board.
The crowd cheered, as Santa turned on the lights on the bay.
The bay will stay lit every night during the holiday season for families to enjoy. We recommend taking a drive down to Newport Dunes, having dinner at the Back Bay Bistro while enjoying the spectacular lights on the bay.
Newport Dunes is located at 1131 Back Bay Drive in Newport Beach.
