After two weekends, the 42nd annual Boat Parade of Lights has concluded.

This year, boaters decorated their vessels with bright colored lights, sea animals, mermaids and more to participate in the theme, “Under the Sea.”

There were 65 entries this year, and 25 of them were new to the event.

On Sunday, the Dana Point Harbor Association hosted an awards breakfast.
