Balboa Island Seasons of Fun - Halloween Humor Photos

Balboa Island--When October arrives, it's time to decorate your patio and home with Halloween-themed displays such as the skeleton bride and groom shown above. This Newport Beach island is one of a handful of residential manmade islands in the city.

When you visit Balboa Island, it's all about seasons. Sure, Balboa Island hosts events throughout the year, yet local residents who comprise more than seventy-five percent of the island occupants (renters and vacation rentals are prominent,) tend to look at life not as a list of individual events, but as an ebb and flow of the tides that wash their little island shores in years of activities and celebrations.

From the first cool nights that signal autumn's return, festive flower beds take on the seasonal colors of yellow, orange and red, welcoming  thousands of tourists who travel by ferry to enjoy oceanfront strolls along South Bayfront. One of the most fun times to visit and walk begins in October, when the Halloween decorations are installed. While many do their own Halloween installations, nearly half the island residents hire professional companies to hang Christmas lights and create holiday displays. 

Known as one f the top ten holiday happenings in the U.S., the Christmas Boat Parade is over 100 years old and enjoys over one million attendance annually.  Balboa Island is one of a handful of manmade islands showcased during this event held five days each year in mid-December.
