Get ready to play the legendary tune all weekend long. Why you ask? Because the tall ships are sailing into the city this Saturday, June 17 for the first time in 17 years!
For their only visit to the United States this year, more than 50 majestic ships from all over the world will sail into Boston Harbor Saturday morning in what is known as the Grand Parade of Sail, and millions (yes, millions) are expected to attend. Visitors will also be able to board the ships on Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday, though security will be tighter than it is on the Esplanade on the 4th of July. Beyond Saturday and Sunday, the ships will be in Boston until June 22. For a full list of events, check out the Sail Boston website!
Sail away with us and devour the details of a weekend well spent shippin' up to Boston!
