The theme for the 2005 43rd Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade will be “Star Light, Star Bright.”

“We’re announcing the theme early so boaters have plenty of time to plan their boat designs,” said Cindy Williams, parade president.

The boat parade is scheduled between 6 and 8 p.m. Saturday, December 11th.

A fireworks show at 5:55 p.m. will kick off the start of the parade.

“I’m also happy to announce we are continuing with two boat parades this year so everyone has a chance to see all of the beautifully decorated boats the boaters work so hard to put together,” Williams said.

A preview boat parade is scheduled between 7 and 9 p.m. Friday, December 10th. Both boat parades will circle the main channel of Marina del Rey.
