One of Portland’s favorite holiday events, the Christmas Ships Parade, starts its 60th season December 5 and runs through December 21.

The Christmas Ship Parade will open their 60th season on Friday, December 5th, in a combined fleet cruise down the Columbia River’s North Portland Harbor, this being an up-close and personal cruise in close proximity to the floating homes and marinas that line the inside of Hayden Island. The following night, the combined fleet will head upriver to the Port of Camas/Washougal for their annual cruise to the Mouth of the Gorge. For the next 14 days, the fleets will mix combined fleet and separate cruises on the lower Columbia and Willamette Rivers, culminating with a grand finale on the Willamette River on December 21st.

The boats, 14 to 65 feet long, are brightly decorated for the holiday season. The ships draw thousands of residents each night to the banks of the rivers for their performances. Up to 60 holiday boats are expected to make up the two fleets.

2014 Portland Holiday Ale Festival in Pioneer Square

The 19th annual Holiday Ale Festival will take place Dec. 3 through Dec. 7 at Pioneer Courthouse Square, located at 701 SW Sixth Ave. in the heart of downtown Portland.

The popular event will feature at least four-dozen big, bold ales designed to fend off the cold chill of a long winter night. From Belgians, barleywines and CDAs to winter warmers, porters and stouts, these beers have either been crafted specifically for the event or are hard-to-fine vintages, underscoring the event’s reputation as one of finest gathering of winter beers anywhere in the nation.

Event hours are 11am to 10pm Wednesday through Saturday, and 11am to 5pm Sunday. To avoid the lengthy lines that often accompany beer festivals, the recommended days for attendance are Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. The Holiday Ale Festival is for ages 21 and over.

Despite being held outdoors during one of the coldest months of the year, more than 15,000 festival attendees stay warm and dry over the five-day festival under clear-topped tents that cover the venue.
