Eleven sailing ships will be arriving in Philadelphia, PA, USA for a tall ship festival starting May 24th thru the 28th. The site will be Penn's Landing where the USS Olympia (of Adm George Dewey's Manila Bay fame) and other historic ships are moored.

So close yet I hate driving into the city even when I have to, it is a impressive review even if only on tv.

Saw them in New Orleans last month- underwhelmed.

Grossman I don't think you saw them all. Kalmar Nyckel for example has not sailed from Delaware for the season yet. Several other ships are also based in the Northeast and may not have made a trip to NO.

Still it is unlikely to beat the 2015 event which included L'Hermione, a replica French AWI/Napoleonic frigate that brought General Lafayette to our shores. She fired a broadside in salute during the parade of sail.

Been looking at the Lynx and the Sagres, as well as the Kalmar Nyckel. Can't afford any of the cruises, but would love to board them and see the rigging et al close up.
