Christmas Ship™ Parade of Boats

The holiday parade of the season

As is tradition on Parade of Boats night, brightly decorated boats will convene in Lake Union and begin their promenade westward through the Fremont Cut. Catch the shimmery lights from aboard the Christmas Ship™, join the parade on your own decorated vessel, or gather at the official onshore viewing party at Evanston Plaza for panoramic views of the flotilla. It’s a holiday event that cannot be missed!
