The Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade committee participated in a chili cookoff contest at Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club Sunday, August 12th.

Although committee members did not win for best chili, they did win for “Best Decorations.” Somehow it seems appropriate for the committee that puts on the boat parade to win for their decorations.

The boat parade committee is getting involved in the community as a way of promoting the boat parade, which will be taking place on Saturday, December 8th. This year’s theme is “Holiday Magic.”

Those interested in sponsoring this event or entering their boat in the parade can get more information at
