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.
