Photos: Marina del Rey Boat Parade Winners

Thousands of people attended the 50th anniversary of the Marina del Rey Boat Parade.

The festivites on Saturday for the 50th annual Marina del Rey Boat Parade kicked off with fireworks, followed by hundreds of boats parading around the harbor.

Parade judges gave out awards for categories including best music, best lights and best animation. 

The boat parade has been an annual tradition since 1963, when only a handful of boats participated.

The grand marshall for the 50th anniversary was Kerri Walsh Jennings, three-time Olympic gold medalist in beach volleyball.
