The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of this year's Parade of Lights but it won't cancel holiday spirit! This year the Santa Barbara Waterfront Department will hold a Virtual Vessel Holiday Lights Contest and you get to be the judge! Here's how it will work.

  • December 3rd to December 13th - Vessel owners decorate their boats. There will be four categories (Power, Sail, Commercial Fishing and Commercial Other). There is no theme this year.

  • December 14th to 17th - Waterfront Department Staff visits all participating vessels in their slips and photographs their entry.

  • December 18th - Waterfront Department Staff posts entrant photos along with a judging poll on social media. The public will then get to score the competitors.

  • December 21st - Winners announced!

Thanks to the generous support of our signature sponsor T-Mobile, the Waterfront Department will purchase gift cards from Wharf and Harbor businesses to be used as prizes. Entrants will vie for over $5,000 in prizes including: Annual Waterfront Parking Permits, wine, gift certificates and more!

Participation is free. No purchase necessary. The contest is open to any vessel occupying a slip in Santa Barbara Harbor December 14-17, 2020.
