The Christmas Ship Parade Special - Port of Camas-Washougal 12/1/12

By

The Christmas Ship Parade Special at the Port of Camas-Washougal, December 1st, 2012

The Christmas ShipsLaunch your holiday season with a kick-off performance of the Christmas Ship Parade on Saturday, December 1st from 7-8PM. The boats will assemble at the Port of Washougal-Camas docks for about an hour before sailing for Portland on the Washington side of the Columbia River.

You can enjoy hot cider and cookies at the Christmas Ship Parade special performance which is viewed from the warmth of the meeting room inside the Port offices. The marina is located about 5 miles east of Portland, between Camas and Washougal via highway 14. ( River Mile 127.1)

The Christmas Ship Parade is made possible by donations - and kind-hearted Ship Skippers.

The Christmas ShipsThe Christmas Ship fleet averages about 50-60 boats, all decorated in holiday light themes, that sail on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers from December 7th through the 21st, 2012. This marks the 58th year for the Christmas Ship Parade and it remains one of the area's most popular holiday sights.

Without the generous donations from businesses and restaurants located along the waterfront, the parade would not be possible. The donations help pay for the insurance policy that is required for the annual event. Each Christmas Ship skipper donates his own fuel and time - and receives no compensation.

The Christmas ShipsYou can help the cause by booking your parties and reservations at the sponsoring restaurants and hotels. You'll find a link to those sponors on the  Christmas Ship Parade Schedule. Get ready to launch the holiday season with the Christmas Ship Parade at the Port of Camas - Washougal, on December 1st, 2012.

Hi Debb - Not living around boats, I had no idea they did anything like that. What a cool way to celebrate the season and have a parade!

Debb, the parade sounds really cool to use such a simple word.  Here in PA all the boats are out of the water in preparation for winter. Wish I was closer.  Enjoy.

And thanks for Hug this weekend.

We have a Christmas boat parade coming up this Sunday also on the Patchogue River. It's very nice to watch. Last year, I included a video clip that was made by the Chamber of Commerce.

Deb...Another fun event on the same night is the Christmas light display at 4430 NW Crystal Court in Camas. Display consists of 66000 lights sequenced to music which we broadcast to your car radio on 87.9 FM. Earlier in the year is better viewing; the two week period before Christmas becomes difficult to view the display due to high traffic volume.
