Tickets on sale for Duluth's tall ships festival


Tickets for this summer’s tall ships festival in Duluth went on sale Monday, and organizers of the popular Tall Ships Duluth event are urging fans to book early.

So far, eight vessels have officially confirmed their intent to sail into Duluth for the festival July 25-29. More ships are expected at what could be the biggest event ever, organizers say; there's room for 11 in the festival, the Duluth News Tribune reports.

The event draws about 250,000 people and $15 million to the city, its organizers say.

Tickets can be bought online, or by phone at 877-4FLY-TIX (435-9849).

A four-day ship tour pass is $17 and provides access to the festival grounds and activities. A single-day ship tour pass is $6. At least three ships will offer $95 sailing excursions, the News Tribune reported.

CNN last week profiled the working tall ships, which have masts reaching up to 100 feet in the air.

Here's a glimpse from Duluth's tourism officials:
