Ho ho ho Oregon, one of the largest and most beautiful Christmas parades ever has started for 2021. This classic parade goes clear back to 1954 and started with only one decorated sailboat gliding down the river. In the years following, more and more ships began to join the parade, becoming increasingly popular and magical over the years. This year makes for the 66th year of the Portland Christmas Ships tradition.
