Willamette & Columbia Rivers

The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

The Christmas Ship Parade began in 1954 with one lone sailboat from Portland Yacht Club. Today, the Christmas Ship Fleet averages about 55 to 60 boats between the Columbia and Willamette River fleets, with displays that are brightly lit and can be seen from bank to bank on each river. Join as thousands  gather along the banks of both rivers to watch the parade each year.
