Watch live on the DNT Harbor Cam

Nine tall ships will make their way under the Aerial Lift Bridge this afternoon to kick off the 2016 Tall Ships Duluth festival.

The nine ships are scheduled to enter the canal beginning at about 1 p.m. today, when the ships will enter three at a time during the Parade of Sail. The opening ceremony is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. today.

In addition to the tall ships, the World's Largest Rubber Duck, a 61-foot-tall inflatable creation, will be a part of the festival.

Gates are open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Organizers say they expect about 300,000 people to attend the tall ships festival over the four days.

Single-day and multi-day tickets to view the ships remain available, in addition to options for on-ship tours or a combination ticket with other Duluth attractions. Tickets can be purchased at the gate or in advance online at tallshipsduluth.com, although ticket prices will be more expensive at the gate.

  • Pride of Baltimore II, a 19th-century Baltimore clipper replica
  • El Galeón Andalucía, a replica of a Spanish galleon
  • U.S. Brig Niagara, a replica of a War of 1812 vessel
  • Mist of Avalon, a replica of a 19th-century Grand Banks schooner
  • When and If, Gen. George S. Patton's personal schooner
  • S/V Denis Sullivan, a replica of a 19th-century Great Lakes schooner
