Argosy Christmas Ship and choir favor crowds with song in Des Moines; They return Dec. 19

Onlookers along the Des Moines shore were treated to the arrival of the annual Argosy Christmas Ship™ and its accompanying Parade Ship Wednesday night, Nov. 5. The Rainier Youth Choir sang Christmas songs onboard for 20-minute performances, 8:00 p.m.-8:20 p.m. at Brown’s Point, then from 8:55 p.m. - 9:15 p.m. at Redondo Beach.

People gather behind the roaring bonfire anticipating the arrival of the ships. A portion of all ticket sales benefits The Seattle Times Fund For The Needy, an annual program that raises money for several charitable organizations in the Puget Sound area.

They will return Wednesday, Dec. 19.
