Tickets are now on sale for a tall ships festival that is expected to be even bigger next year.
The Flagship Niagara League is planning to feature up to 15 ships, including five available for day sails. It would be the most ever for the August festival.
Captain Christopher Cusson of the Flagship Niagara League tells us, “I think we could have more people here down at the bayfront of Erie, as well as just having a larger impact economically on the region, too.”
The ships will dock at the Bayfront Convention Center, Dobbins Landing, the Erie Maritime Museum, and the Port Authority.
