THE 2017 GO GOLD NATIONAL AWARENESS TREE
THE 2017 NATIONAL AWARENESS TREE EVENT
Thanks to The City of Newport Beach and its Chamber of Commerce, we are excited to share that this year the tree will stand tall again at the Marina Park in Newport Beach, CA, for anyone who is able to visit! The 2017 National Childhood Cancer Awareness Tree will again be a part of the 109th Newport Beach, California Holiday Boat Parade taking place on Wednesday, December 13th to Sunday, December 17th. The National Awareness Tree will once again “Light Up the Holidays with Hope” and will adorn thousands of gold ribbons, each ribbon bearing the name, age, and state of a child who has been diagnosed with cancer.
On Wednesday night, December 13th, they will have the LA Chargers providing us a Field Goal toss competition; and the LA Chargers cheerleaders will be at Marina Park signing autographs. The Chamber of Commerce Newport Beach will have food, beverages, and activities like face painters and cartoonists for kid-friendly entertainment.
On the opening night of the parade on Wednesday, December 13 at approximately 6:15 pm, a special opening fireworks display will take place off the Newport Pier to kick off the parade. Then, on the final night of the parade, Sunday, December 17, a special fireworks display will close out the parade from the Balboa Pier. Beginning at approximately 9:00 pm, the fireworks will be visible from all around the harbor.
