Thursday, the Twin Ports truly kicked off the shipping season as dozens gathered for the ceremony of the annual port blessing. 

The service celebrated the beginning of activity out on the water again.

“This is something we’re all part of here, this makes us unique in the world,” said Doug Paulson, Director at the Twin Ports Ministry. “We’re the western most port in this country up in the Great Lakes, and it’s just an opportunity to be reminded of the special place that we play in this whole industry that goes on out on the lake.”

Twin Ports shipping officials want to make sure to provide a warm welcome to all the travelers who stop in Duluth on their journeys.
