Christmas Ships at the Parks – 2019 Schedule

The Argosy Christmas Ships will soon be cruising! An annual Seattle tradition, Argosy sponsors a string of festively-decorated boats that move from the Sound to Lake Union and out to Lake Washington. These boats stop to share their holiday cheer and perform Christmas carols for neighbors and community who watch from the beach.

Community members are invited to bring a thermos of hot cocoa to one of the following parks and watch 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. The times below are for when Seattle Parks and Recreation will be organizing bonfires at the following park locations.
