Yes, we are still parading!
However, due to COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings, some of our events and activities have been impacted.
Our Meet & Greet events on December 19/20 have been cancelled. While we are at the dock in St. Helens (Dec 12), we usually invite the public on to the dock to see our boats up close. The dock will be closed to the public this year. Please check back here or on Facebook closer to the season start for any additional announcements.
We’re excited to continue the parade this year and offer some form of normalcy in such an abnormal time. Our lighted boat parade is an event that people can enjoy and view safely this holiday season. Even if you just catch a glimpse of us on the water while driving, we hope we brighten your evening.
But please, leave plenty of space between spectators, wear a mask, and follow all other protocols to keep yourself and others safe from the spread of COVID-19. We are scheduled to parade 15 nights and there are many places along the parade routes to watch without crowding. Check our schedule and plan ahead. We want you to enjoy our parade in the best of health and well-being! Happy Holidays and we look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Ships Parade!
