Parade of Lighted Ships


  • Percival Landing Park
  • 405 Columbia St NW, Olympia, WA 98501
  • 6:00 PM

Saturday, December 1st at 6 p.m.

This event is the single most visible and popular community activity sponsored by Olympia Yacht Club and is a favorite holiday tradition for families in our community. Each year, hundreds of people show up at the Port Plaza to cheer the brightly lit flotilla. Along Budd Inlet, folks plan holiday parties to coincide with the parade.

The best viewing is at the Port Plaza Tower (in front of Anthony's Restaurant). Santa & Mrs. Claus will be there handing out candy canes to the kiddos and the Capital High School Choir will be singing Christmas carols prior to the start of the parade. We suggest folks arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the parade start time.
