As the sun set over the harbor, the 108th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade began its five day float in the harbor Wednesday night.
Mickey Mouse was grand marshal of the parade. The Disney Resort supplied a float honoring the January return of the Main Street Electrical Parade to its home park.
About 80 boats, yachts and other floating vessels followed the 14-mile route around nearly the entire harbor. Thousands of spectators lined the waterways.
