CHICAGO (CBS) – A Chicago holiday tradition returns. There will be a public ceremony at Navy Pier welcoming the Chicago Christmas ship at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Last year’s ceremony was canceled because of the pandemic. 1,200 donated trees will be unloaded and given to families in need and community organizations.

The original Christmas ship went down in Lake Michigan in 1912.
