Argosy Cruises proudly presents the official Christmas Ship™ Festival Annual Parade of Boats, a public evening event to celebrate the holiday season featuring regional boats of the Puget Sound. Decorated in sparkling lights, boats parade through Lake Union, then west through the Fremont Cut, showcasing their festive themes to local families and friends on shore.

$25 for participating boaters is a suggested minimum charitable donation to our Light Up the Holidays campaign, a new donation effort that will help us reach our goal of $45,000 to donate to our The Seattle Times Fund For Those In Need. This fund raises money for 13 local charitable organizations in the Puget Sound area. 100% of donations to Light Up the Holidays will go towards the fund.
