Welcome to the Magic Ship of Christmas

The 37th season of the Magic Ship of Christmas has begun! Please join us at the Annual Morgan Hill Holiday of Lights parade on Monterey Road in downtown Morgan Hill on December 5th, 2009 at 5:00 PM. After Santa lights the Christmas tree he will “sail” to the Community Center to visit with all of the children gathered.

The Christmas season in Morgan Hill, California is a magical time that is due in part to our local tradition of the Magic Ship of Christmas. The Magic Ship is operated as a community service project by the Boy Scouts of Troop 799 with the support of our Morgan Hill Kiwanis Club. The ship spends weeks “sailing” about town bringing cheer to local businesses, rest homes, neighborhoods and day care centers.

We wish to thank all of our previous years sponsors for our past seasons. The Magic Ship is run and maintained completely by volunteers. The proceeds from the Magic Ship (other than funds to physically maintain the ship) go to support the local Boy Scout Troop 799 to offset the cost of attending Summer Camp by the boys in the troop.

During the day on weekends in December the Magic Ship “sails” to local businesses. The Magic Ship arrives with Santa and his Boy Scout elves. Children board the ship to visit with Santa and are given a candy cane and small toy for no cost. The Boy Scouts will provide a photograph of the children with Santa for a nominal donation of $5.00 per photo if the parents so choose.
