Christmas Ship sails to Ballard

The Christmas Ship Festival continues Tuesday night as the lit-up Argosy ship sails through the Locks to Golden Gardens.

For 60 years, Seattleites have watched as the Christmas Ship and other boats, all decked out for the holiday, sail by. Tonight the boats will be going through the Ballard Locks between 8:10 and 8:30 p.m. as they head to Golden Gardens for a stop between 9:05-9:25 p.m. If you’d like to experience this tradition, the Ballard Community Center will have a big bonfire at Golden Gardens. The Seattle Civic Band will play from 8 p.m. until the ship gets there. They will serve hot cider, hot chocolate and cookies in the Golden Gardens Bath House. (Photo courtesy: Argosy Cruises.)

Well, the music was nice bit there were only 4 or 5 boats. After lots of waiting, it was pretty disappointing.
