Thousands Continue to Visit the Tall Ships

Event Ends Sunday

The Tall ships are still in Duluth, and Thousands of people continue the city to see the boats.

The event is a rare chance for people to see the boats, hop aboard, and even sail around on the tall ships, and Duluth is one of only a small number of Great Lakes Ports that is hosting the event.

Thousands of people are visiting Duluth for their chance to get a look at the ships, Some of the ships are replicas of historic vessels, and others have been in documentaries and movies. Some people dressed up in costumes to really get in to the spirit of the event.

“Just the size of them, and the workmanship and the craftsmanship that goes in to it all, and how  sea weathered they are. Some of them are really old, and still, they’re still afloat,” said Randy Senkbeil, a visitor.

The event also included food, entertainment and live music.
