Christmas Ships at the Parks – 2018 Schedule

photo by TIA International Photography

The Argosy Christmas Ships are cruising! An annual Seattle tradition, Argosy sponsors a string of festively-decorated boats that move from the Sound to Lake Union and out the Lake Washington. These boats stop to share their holiday cheer, and perform Christmas carols for neighbors and community who watch from the beach. If our dry autumn continues, the weather will be ideal for taking a thermos of hot cocoa to one of the following parks and watching the sparkling lights while the choir sings. Come celebrate the season! Dress warm, bring umbrellas just in case, and join with your community in this guaranteed-to-make-you-feel-good activity. (The ships make stops outside the park system too.)

These events are free, and all ages are welcome.
