Christmas Ship Parade

Starting with a single boat in 1954, Portland has created a holiday celebration of its very own. These days between 50-60 boat owners design and decorate their vessels in holiday lights and travel the rivers for anyone along the banks who wishes to see. Restaurants and hotels along the river have become popular viewing places for this unique Portland tradition. Check out the website to the parade schedule and weather updates.
