Every holiday season, Mount Baker Beach is one of the stops for the Argosy Christmas Ships Parade. The community gathers at the Clubhouse for a cookie potluck, carols and a visit from Santa Claus. We then all walk down the Mount Baker trail, lit by beautiful luminaries, to the beach to greet the ships as they arrive.
