The festival takes over the water as the celebration begins with the Parade of Sail, which features a display of eight traditional vessels from Canada, the United States and Spain. Each ship is crewed – in part – by youths ages 13-25.

Other festival highlights include “Ask the Captain” forums, photo ops, a festival marketplace and family friendly activities along with performances by Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers. A full festival schedule will be announced at a later date.
