Portland Walking Tours

Last chance to view Portland’s Christmas ships!

December 21st, 2012

Oh, Messrs, dim the lights… no! Wait! Keep them lit, one more night!

It’s your last chance of 2012 to see Portland’s Christmas fleets light up the wake of our two grand rivers.

Say good-bye to the Columbia Fleet at 7:00PM, when the parade assembles in the area of the James. M Gleason boat ramp and heada downriver to North Portland Harbor. North Portland Harbor is located on the Oregon side of Hayden Island.

Likewise, the Willamette Fleet makes its final voyage as an ensemble tonight. The fleet assembles in front of RiverPlace Marina at 7:00PM and travels upriver to the area of the Milwaukie Boat Ramp. The fleet will arrive about 7:45PM and about 8:15P the fleet turns and returns to RiverPlace Marina. The fleet will also sail in below Oaks Park and in front of the floating homes on the way back to RiverPlace.

It ought to be a grand finale!
