The Christmas Ship Festival is back – bringing Christmas cheer to Lake Washington, Lake Union and other spots around Puget Sound. There are lots of ways you can participate in the festivities. For one, you could book a ticket aboard the Argosy ships. Choose between a dinner cruise (for adults), a family buffet cruise (for those with kiddos), or the Christmas Ship (if you want to be up close and personal with the performers). You can also meet up at the designated shore stops to gather around the bonfire, watch the lighted ships come in, and listen to a 20-minutes performance from the on-board entertainment (don’t forget the hot chocolate!) ..OR if you happen to have a boat..throw some lights up and join the parade.
The schedule can be found on the Argosy site – this is one of the most beloved holiday traditions around the Seattle area and easy to participate in, plus a special treat to see all of the lit ships from the shore.
p.s. Rumor has it that Santa makes an appearance on the ships … a great place for a Santa Sighting!
