The Argosy Christmas Ship Festival

The Argosy Cruises
Christmas ShipFestival is a
holiday celebration that
has been a Pacific Northwest
tradition since 1949. Every
year, the Argosy Christmas
Ship sails to different
Puget Sound waterfront
communities, around 65 in 
total. Choirs on board give 
20-minute performances to these communities, all broadcast via their state-of-the-art speaker system. On shore, thousands of people gather around roaring bonfires anticipating the arrival of the Christmas Ship.
