The 2017 Christmas ships are afloat!

Everyone loves the Seattle tradition of the Christmas ships – concerts at the water’s edge, sung by choirs from the deck of a big floating party alight with Christmas decorations. Sponsored by Argosy Cruises, the ships cruise daily, visiting many Puget Sound locations to spread holiday cheer. We are delighted to help greet the celebration in our city parks, providing bonfires and other holiday activities at many of the stops.

Here’s the schedule of stops in Seattle parks along Lake Washington, Puget Sound, and other local waterways. Come revel with us! Dress warm, bring umbrellas, and join with your community in this heartwarming activity.
