Experiencing an old Seattle holiday tradition
December 28, 2022
A man at the church we've been attending while dog/house sitting in Woodinville, Washington, was offering to take folks on his 50-foot boat to cruise in Seattle's annual Christmas Ship Festival. The festival involves lighted boats cruising on Lake Washington and the Puget Sound. The parade visits various lakeside communities and presents short musical programs for folks gathered on the shoreline. The month long festival has been operating for nearly 80 years. Despite having lived a couple of Christmases in the Seattle area, we'd never heard of the event. It looked like it might be fun.
