The Christmas Ships are Coming!!!

November 15, 2016 | By


Every year, Milwaukie hosts a Winter Solstice community gathering to watch the Christmas Ship Parade.  For 2016, that will be on Saturday, December 17th — watch for more details in early December.

But the ships actually come to Milwaukie SIX TIMES every December, and each is a great opportunity to bring your friends or family downtown to patronize one of our restaurants and then walk across McLoughlin to view the ships.  The dates the ships are coming this year, and approximate times, are:

Monday, December 5 around 7:45pm

Wednesday, December 7 around 7:45pm

Friday, December 9 around 7:45pm

Wednesday, December 14 around 7:45pm

Friday, December 16 around 7:45pm

Saturday, December 17 (Solstice Event):

(the ships will pass by en route to Lake Oswego between 5:00 and 5:30pm, and pass by again on their way back around 7pm)
