It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! What a wonderful time to relax and take in all the beauty our community has to offer, especially after dark. Not only do our neighborhoods light up, but so does the Columbia River. One of the most unique Christmas lighting displays around Clark County starts Thursday, December 5, 2019. It’s time for the 65th Annual Christmas Ships Parade!

The Christmas Ship Parade started out as one lone sailboat, and now the fleet averages 60 ships (between the Columbia River and Willamette River fleets) adorned with Christmas lights and decorations. The Christmas Ship Parade has become a family tradition for many boat owners, and the Skippers pay for their own decorations and fuel costs, for the enjoyment of all. As this is an all volunteer organization, not all ships make it out every night.

The Christmas ships will be parading again this year on the Columbia at Parker’s Landing Marina on Saturday, December 7th and the Port of Camas-Washougal is welcoming guests to join them for cookies and cider and to view the parade from the warmth of the Port meeting room. The doors will open at 5:00 pm and the parade begins at 6:00 pm.

The Christmas Ships Parade is the longest running parade of its kind in the USA. So whether you are thinking of watching inside or out this year, please be sure to check out the nightly schedule and map before hand.
