The Christmas Ship Parade on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers in Portland, Oregon offers the greater Portland area a thrilling holiday parade unlike any other on the water! The Portland tradition that started with one decorated boat and is now a volunteer organization that features dozens of entries each season. The privately owned vessels come from Portland, Vancouver, McMinnville, Salem and Hood River areas to participate. Some of the boat owners have been part of Christmas tradition for more than 30 years. Join the Portland Spirit to make this your holiday tradition!
