About Us

HHPC Cruise of Lights®

In 1962 a handful of kid watching, coffee clutching mothers began talking about what they could do to make the holidays more exciting in their sparsely developed new community. Pooling their ideas and philanthropic intentions, they decided take advantage of the few decorated homes on the water and to charge for boat rides through the marine channels near PCH and Warner Avenue in Huntington Beach.   Boats as small as Boston Whalers were recruited to carry paying passengers.  The riders loved the lights reflected on the calm waters of Huntington Harbour.   Ticket sales were lively and from those humble beginnings the Cruise of Lights became Huntington Harbour Philharmonic Committee’s major fundraiser.

All these years later the five groups in the Harbour (Admiralty, Islander, Marina-Windjammer, Sandpiper and Trinidad) work together to make Cruise of Lights a successful fund raiser for Philharmonic year after year.

The Huntington Harbour Philharmonic Committee announces its 51st Annual Cruise of Lights beginning Thursday, December 14, 15 and continuing through December 19-23, 2013. The theme for this year’s Boat Parade (selected by our  Grand Marshal, Bill Wheeler) is “Music Around the World” and that should elicit some delightful additions to many previously enjoyed displays.  Cruises will occur nightly and are open to the public at nominal cost.   You can purchase individual tickets for any night or make reservations for your club or interest group by calling the HHPC office.

Come join us as we celebrate the holiday season and support PSOC’s Youth Programs.

Call 714 840 7542 for reservations and further details.
