Christmas Ship Parade (Christmas Season Kickoff)

_______________________________________

Let's bring our North/Central/Eastside and South Sound Meetups together for this wonderful Holiday event!!






Celebrate Seattle's festive Christmas season as part of the Christmas Ship Parade. We will be aboad the Parade Boat that follows the official Christmas Ship. A local featured choir on the Christmas ship sings 20-minute programs at scheduled shoreside locations. The choir is broadcast over state-of-the-art speaker systems, letting those on shore join in the festivities. Onboard, Santa Mingles with guests, spreading cheer. Box Lunches, Chowder and Drinks are available for an additional cost. The Parade this evening leaves from the Museum of Glass in Tacoma and will visit Bondfire locations in Gig Harbor. Cost including tax is 20.53. Boat begins boarding at 6:15pm and will leave promptly at 7:00pm. The Will-Call Tent will be located adjacent to the pier on Dock Street, and open at 5:30pm to pick up your Boarding Pass. The boat will leave from the Dock behind the Museum of Glass in Tacoma.
Family members can be accommadated on the Argosy payment site below.

Please view the following video to see what to expect. It should put us all in the Christmas Spirit, See you all on board.

    12/03 Update. Currently we sit at around 124 registered, and according to Argosy 100 from our group have paid. This does not include the general public. Argosy will sell up to 150 spots. Over the last 48 hours, interest has exploded for this event. I would strongly suggest if you plan on going to finalize payment at your earliest opportunity. Your meetup RSVP does not secure your spot on the boat, only your payment will do that. See you all aboad

    Yay! Looking forward to it! Anyone work in downtown Tacoma area that wants to carpool to the location? Might be easier for parking. I work next door to Tacoma General Hosp. We could park where I work and take your car or leave your car where you work and take mine-open to suggestions.

    Altho it will be about 10 pm, would anyone be interested in running across the street to the Harmon after we dock for a quick bite and/or drink?

    11/19 update. Currently we still sit at around 100 registered, and according to Argosy only 38 are paid. It may be a good time to lock in your spot by finalizing your payment. Thank You. Wishing all a truely wonderful Thanksgiving.

    11/6/12 Update. Taking into consideration our 100 RSVP's between all postings and what general public is booked, the boat is at 69% capacity. Argosy is still selling to the public, so the public bookings will start digging into our RSVP's that have not paid. I would recommend if you can to get your payments in as soon as possible. Thank You and have a great holiday
