From our fellow Seattle Times News Partners "Three Sheets Northwest" comes this article about the annual sailings of the Argosy Christmas Ship.

There are multiple sailings. You can buy tickets to sail on the ship itself, follow it in your boat, or be on the shore for the landings.

The Lake Forest Park Civic Club has a private party with a landing at their dock on December 21, 2011, and the Richmond Beach Neighborhood, associated with Shoreline Parks, has an event at 7:30pm on December 13, 2011, at Saltwater Park, with a bonfire and carol singing.

From Three Sheets Northwest:
Each year, boaters light up their vessels and follow the Argosy Christmas ship, Spirit of Seattle, as it travels to ports around Puget Sound. Different local choirs travel onboard the Spirit of Seattle and perform 20-minute programs that are broadcast over the ship’s speakers. Onshore, crowds gather around bonfires and wait for the ships to arrive. 
This year’s festival starts tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 26, on South Lake Union. Boaters are invited to follow the Spirit of Seattle as it departs at 7 p.m. and heads to the Museum of History and Industry on the Montlake Cut for a performance by the Northwest Boychoir and then back to the park.
