Christmas Ships Celebration & Bonfire
Every holiday season, Mount Baker Beach is one of the stops for the Argosy Christmas Ships Parade. The Community Club builds a bonfire on the beach to greet the ships when they arrive. After the ships leave the community gathers at the Clubhouse, following the trail of beautiful luminaries up the hill, for a cookie potluck, carols and a visit from Santa Claus.
Join us for the 2016 Christmas Ships Celebration!
