WHAT: The first Tall Ships festival in Erie, Pa., in a decade!

WHEN: Thurs., September 9 through Sunday, September 12, 2010

WHERE: Dobbins Landing and the Erie Maritime Museum

WHO: The Flagship Niagara League will host a four-day Tall Ships festival in partnership with the Erie County Historical Society’s one-day Heritage Festival.

WHY: The Flagship Niagara League seized an opportunity to bring this breathtaking festival, which is unique to the Great Lakes region, to the Erie Bayfront in the fall of 2010. People from the tri-state region and beyond will enjoy four days of bayside sailing enjoyment and help to raise funds for the Flagship Niagara League, which maintains and operates Pennsylvania’s Flagship, the U.S. Brig Niagara.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS: TBA, but activities will include public day sails, a parade of sail, school tours, public tours, free Erie Maritime Museum tours, private receptions, craft and food vendors, and musical entertainment.
