Tall Ships

Led by U.S. Brig Niagara, Pennsylvania's flagship, six tall ships sailed through the channel and into Presque Isle Bay Friday evening.  The Parade of Sails marks the beginning of four day Tall Ships Erie Festival in Erie, PA, the home port of the Niagara.

Thousands of people lined every foot of Erie's waterfront to catch a glimpse of these magnificent ships, a small part of our history.  The Unicorn has an all female crew including six local women who assisted the crew during their trip to Erie.   Two more tall ships are expected to arrive on Saturday as they were delayed by weather.  Erie expects 30,000 to 50,000 people to participate during the four festival.  If yesterday's overcast, chilly and windy brought out approx. 10,000 people, you can just imagine what the numbers will be for the rest of the weekend.

 

Weekend Forecast:  low to mid-70's, sunny & beautiful.  Come visit us in Erie, PA.

My wife and children spent a night in Erie, we were on a road trip that took us around the great lakes. We loved Erie, especially my wife and I. We rented a room overlooking the lake and after the girls went to sleep we had time for each other and truly enjoyed being there.

Paul--Well, since you like Erie so well you should come back.  Tall Ships Festival is just one of many great events happening in Erie, PA.  And the people are very friendly.  Let us know if your travels bring you back this way.  In the meantime I hope that you enjoy ActiveRain as much as I do.

Janice--We love being near the water and we try to take advantage of the closeness of Lake Erie.  We also love the ocean & most of our vacations are on or near the water.  My stepson has photos of a cardboard ship race earlier today.  If he sends them to me I will post them here.
