Foothills Park

Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016


2016 marks the 62nd year of the magical Christmas Ship Parade! This holiday tradition began in 1954 with a lone sailboat from the Portland Yacht Club. Today, up to 60 boats are expected to make up the two fleets which make their way to Lake Oswego. They depart from RiverPlace Marina and continue as far as George Rogers Park in Lake Oswego, arriving between 6:00 and 6:15pm. Make plans to enjoy the sparkle of the colorful flotillas from the shores of Foothills Park. 

Event is dependent upon weather and river conditions.  For additional information, visit
