Tours, fun activities and treats for all ages aboard the historic ships moored at Lake Union Park.

Yes, Santa, there is a VIRGINIA! Get your family and pet photos with Santa aboard a festively-decorated  Virginia V, see a tap dancing reindeer, and mingle with friends of the ship while sipping cider and hot chocolate. Admission to the VIRGINIA V is free.
