Christmas Ships and Bonfire at O.O. Denny Park on Saturday, December 19 at 4:00

The Christmas Ships will visit O.O. Denny Park on the shores of Lake Washington this coming Saturday, December 19. As usual, the flotilla will stand offshore and regale us with caroling and their beautiful Christmas lights. And we’ll have a roaring bonfire and free hot chocolate to keep us warm. FHNA is providing the hot chocolate and the City is providing the firewood — for which we are very grateful. The Christmas fleet is scheduled to arrive at 4.00pm. Come a bit earlier to enjoy the fire and get something to drink. This is a great family event and a terrific way to celebrate the holidays! See you...

Sat, Dec 19 Christmas Ship Event

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19 Don’t Miss the Christmas Ship! The Christmas Ship with its sparkling entourage arrives in late afternoon on the shoreline of Denny Park this year: 4 – 4:20pm,  Saturday, December 19. Warm up around a rip roaring bonfire, the live music of The Dickens Carolers echoes across the water, the paths are lined with luminaries, hot chocolate warms the bellies, children’s eyes sparkle all along the waterline, and throngs of neighbors LOVE this annual event. Come one, come all, and bring your friends for the best Christmas Ship park party of them all. Walk there if you can, along Holmes Point, or down through Denny Park pathways. Part of the magic is venturing out in the dark and cold of winter into flashlights, fire sparks, and moving waves of watery music! It all happens fast, so get there early and stay late as the fire crackles down and heats up and neighbors keep on singing. If you’d like to actually ride on the ship, go to http://www.argosycruises.com/theme-cruises/christmas-ship-festival/ to reserve your...
