This first-annual event is happening in the harbor as I write this.

As part of our 2020 War Heroes on Water Reunion Tournament, we will be holding a very special patriotic Boat Parade. The first-annual event will enable local friends and family to celebrate our returning Veterans and share our collective appreciation for their dedication, sacrifice and service.
The event will be held on Oct. 1st at 4:30pm, starting in the Newport Harbor Turning Basin. Everyone is encouraged to join us as we give our Veterans a celebratory hero’s welcome before sending them off for another memorable and healing weekend of trademark Southern California sportfishing.
For boat owners who would like to participate in the parade, please fill out the form below so that you can become a registered participant. All registered participants will receive a commemorative War Heroes on Water Tournament Flag that you can prominently display during the event—and beyond.
