Weather halts Saturday’s Christmas Ship Parade near Camas, Washougal

Next parade planned for Tuesday

By , Columbian business reporter

Saturday night’s planned Christmas Ship Parade near Camas and Washougal was canceled due to high winds, according to the group that organizes the parades. The group posted a notice to its website and on social media Saturday afternoon.

Due to a full parade schedule, there won’t be an opportunity to reschedule the Camas event this year, the group said.

The multi-week annual event includes parades throughout December at sites along the Willamette and Columbia rivers. This year’s event kicked off Friday night with a parade from the James M. Gleason Boat Ramp in Portland to the North Portland Harbor, staying in the channel to the south of Hayden Island.

The next parade is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday and will also depart from the Gleason ramp, this time sailing west along the north side of the Columbia River past the Interstate 5 Bridge and The Waterfront Vancouver, then looping back around.

Additional parades are planned for most nights through Dec. 22. A full schedule can be found at
