Christmas Ship Parade
December 5 - December 22
Some of Portland’s natural wonders, the Columbia and Willamette rivers, shine this season with the Christmas Ship Parade. This long-running tradition sees around 60 festively decorated boats floating on the area’s waterways nightly, delighting shore-bound onlookers in local hotels and restaurants. The entirely volunteer-run event has been lighting smiles since 1954, parading for 15 nights, starting on December 5th and ending on December 22nd.
