The tall ships are here!  And with them has come additional people and traffic to the Duluth Harbor area.  One estimate I saw suggested an additional 300,000 people visiting our community to see the eight giant ships that have sailed into our port for the four day event.

But what if you want to see the ships without battling the crowd and the traffic?  Or - what if you're stuck at work and can't leave?

One suggestion is to watch the parade of ships and all of the accompanying action on the Duluth Harbor Cam.  This online option gives you an up-front look through one of their two cameras.

If you're specifically looking for the parade, it starts at 1:30 PM on Thursday - but - there will be plenty to look at throughout the whole weekend.
