The annual Christmas Ships Parade returns to Camas-Washougal this Saturday. The lighted ships will assemble in front of the Port of Camas-Washougal at 6 p.m. and parade until 7 p.m. on Dec. 5.

The annual Christmas Ships parade will make its way to Camas-Washougal this weekend, with boats decked out in lights for the winter holiday season passing by the Port of Camas-Washougal at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5.

“We’re excited to continue the parade this year and offer some form of normalcy in such an abnormal time,” organizers of the 66th annual event stated on the group’s website. “Our lighted boat parade is an event that people can enjoy and view safely this holiday season. Even if you catch a glimpse of us on the water while driving, we hope we brighten your evening.”

Spectators are encouraged to keep plenty of space — at least six feet — between non-household groups, wear face coverings and follow all other COVID-19 safety protocols.

The parade will hit various spots along the Columbia and Willamette rivers in Southwest Washington and Portland Dec. 4-22.

The combined Columbia-Willamette fleet will assemble in front of the Port of Camas-Washougal at 6 p.m. Dec. 5 and parade in the area for about one hour.
