Despite the fact that the Covid pandemic has discouraged many vacation plans, one Christmas custom will proceed with this end of the week in Huntington Harbor.
The 58th yearly Huntington Harbor Boat Parade will go on as booked in Huntington Beach, however the Cruise of Lights that would normally follow has been dropped for 2020.
The boat march is normally offered as a thank you to Huntington Harbor occupants for brightening their homes for the Cruise of Lights, a pledge drive for the Philharmonic Society of Orange County’s childhood music instruction.
“No one will purchase passes to see a lot of dim homes,” Philharmonic advertising seat Lara Anderson said. “Despite the fact that we can’t do the Cruise of Lights due to COVID-19, the volunteers chose to go ahead and proceed with the convention of the motorcade.”
