Hundreds of thousands of onlookers are expected to flock to the city’s lakefront this week to get a glimpse of the the 9 tall ships that will be participating in this year’s Parade of Sail. As part of the Tall Ships Duluth festival, this spectacular and highly-coordinated event is one of the more unique happenings that will take place in Duluth in 2016, and it’s something that most of us have been looking forward to all summer.
Being dubbed the “Greatest Spectacle on Lake Superior,” Tall Ships Duluth 2016 is projected to be the largest event in the Duluth area’s history and will give festival-goers a rare and unique look at some of the grandest ships you’ll ever see. Throughout the duration of the festival, tours of each ship all be available, as well as educational programming, food and drink vendors, and plenty of fun-filled entertainment for the whole family.
This year, festival planners have also partnered with Art in Bayfront Park, so works from over 150 high quality art vendors will also be on display during the event as well, giving you plenty of great opportunities at purchasing some pretty amazing pieces of art while taking in the sights and sounds of Tall Ships Duluth.
