Christmas Ship 2022: Closest Locations are Nov 25th and 26th, and December 2nd
By Stuart Jenner
The Argosy Christmas ship schedule is now posted, and if you want a short drive from the Highline area to see the ship and hear choirs, there are four dates/times worth noting. Unfortunately, no performances are scheduled in Burien, Redondo, or Des Moines in 2022. Here are the closest locations to the Highline area where people can watch from shore at no cost:
Friday, November 25th – 5 pm – 6:30 pm, Don Armeni Park at the north end of West Seattle
Saturday, November 26th – 5 pm – 6:30 pm, Salty’s Restaurant at the north end of West Seattle
Saturday, November 26th – 8 pm – 9:30 pm, Alki Beach Park, West Seattle
Friday, December 2nd – from 8 pm – 10 pm, there will be a bonfire at Gene Coulon Park in Renton. The performance will last 20 minutes, then the boat sails to the Mercer Island Beach Club.
All sailings this year are on Lake Washington or Lake Union. Other locations include Kirkland, Bellevue, and various areas of north Lake Washington. The web page also has info about boat tickets if you want to be closer to the choirs.
I’ve had great memories of the Christmas ship sailings over the years. It is always fun to hear the choirs, see the lights, and enjoy the Christmas season.
