Seattle’s Christmas Ship Festival

The Christmas Ship Festival has been part of Seattle’s Holiday Festivities for over 70 years, and you can join in on all the fun. From November 25th through December 23th, ships are decorated with hundreds and hundreds of lights and cruise nightly along the shores of Puget Sound and Lake Washington, visiting communities along the way. You can ride on one of several boats along with local choirs singing their hearts out, or enjoy one of many bonfires on the shoreline watching as the parade of boats pass by.  It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit!
