The Madison Park Community Council will host a holiday celebration for the return of the Argosy Christmas ships to Lake Washington Dec. 18.

The council will join the Seattle Parks and Recreation department in sponsoring the annual holiday bash at Madison Park Bathhouse.

The party starts at 2 p.m. with food, beverages, live music and a bonfire on the beach. The ships will arrive from 3:35 to 3:55 p.m. This is a tradition that offers great fun and holiday cheer for your family and the whole neighborhood.
