Already planning for the 2010 Holiday Boat Parade, organizers of the 48th annual Marina del Rey event have announced its theme as “A Rock-N-Roll Christmas.”

The boat parade is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, December 11th, when holiday-decorated boats will circle the main channel of Marina del Rey at least twice for judging.

“The Holiday Boat Parade is getting bigger and better every year and we’re thrilled to announce this year’s theme early so our boaters can start planning their design ideas,” parade president Cindy Williams said.

Members of the public who are interested in being a part of the planning committee for the 2010 Marina del Rey Holiday Boat Parade can contact parade headquarters at (310) 670-7130.
