Boats Light Up for King Harbor Christmas Boat Parade

The annual event drew hundreds of spectators to King Harbor Saturday evening.

Hundreds lined the waters near the King Harbor Yacht Club in Redondo Beach Saturday for the 21st-annual King Harbor Christmas Boat Parade.

With the theme of "A Christmas Wish," boats paraded through the harbor decorated with Christmas lights and displays as their skippers donned Christmas costumes.
