It’s the most wonderful time of Year and the Christmas Ships Parade is getting ready to set sail for the 69th year!
We are busy testing the lights, updating the displays and polishing our boats, all to get ready to shine for you!
The Christmas Ship fleet members are looking forward to a fantastic season. We have some new boats, some new displays and are bringing back some old favorites as well. All fleet members are enthusiastic volunteers, paying all their own expenses, and ready to put on a show for you. Fun fact, some of our participants have been parading for over 40 years! That my friends, is dedication.
Experience wonder, create traditions and make memories as our spectacularly illuminated fleet glides past. A treasured Norwest tradition, we are honored to be part our your holiday celebrations. Plan your viewing now! The parade routes are all available under the schedule tab. Scroll down for viewing suggestions.
