During our 2016 Fall Trip we were in Erie, Pennsylvania for the Tall Ships Festival. This is an annual event to celebrate these Tall Mast Ships. The day we stopped was the beginning of the festival and we were able to watch two of these ships coming into to port. These ships travel to many ports in the Great Lakes and Canada during the summer and fall. Many of the sailors who man these ships are young people and visiting with them after the ships have docked was a pleasure. Watching them climb and float around the rigging and sails was amazing. If you get a chance to see these great ships in person don’t pass it up. Of course we had lunch and dinner on the docks while enjoying this festival.
