People Travel from Across the Country for Tall Ships

Thousands of People are in Duluth for the Event

Thousands of people are pouring in to Duluth for the Tall Ships.

The big event is bringing people in from not only across the state but even from other states. One couple came from Oklahoma City, just to see the ships for their wedding anniversary.

“My wife surprised me actually, yep, she planned it a year ago, and I had no idea, so we headed out yesterday and we got up here and… looking forward to spending the day seeing all the boats,” said Kevin Ford, visiting from Oklahoma.

The first Tall Ships Festival, back in 2008, featured only three ships but still drew 125,000 people.
