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.
