Lights on the Lake Boat Parade

Return to Lake Perris Home

What Is It?

Every December, Lake Perris State Recreation Area hosts the annual “Lights on the Lake” Holiday Boat Parade. The event will be held at Lake Perris Launch Ramp 6 and will begin at 5:00 pm, (contestants must be on the water by 4:30 pm).

There will be a DJ, food and beverages, coloring contests for the kids, and Santa Claus will take time out of his busy schedule to visit the lake and take requests.

The Parade partners each year with a children's charity. In the past, proceeds have gone to purchasing wagons for the Loma Linda Children's Hospital or the California Highway Patrol CHiPs for Kids to donate toys to local charities.

Show some holiday spirit by participating and entering your vessel to compete against others for great prizes (All contestants receive free admission to the event). Or, bring your family and friends to enjoy the parade from the shoreline.
