Many of the ships will be in the Boston Harbor through Thursday celebrating the fourth as well as the bicentennial of the War of 1812.
This week, Boston will host Navy Week, Boston Harborfest, OpSail 2012, War of 1812 Bicentennial celebrations, and more.
With more than 200 activities planned for the 31st Boston Harborfest from June 28th through July 4th, this year’s weeklong festival promises to live up to its proud reputation as the nation’s largest patriotic celebration. More than half of the Harborfest events are free and based on last year’s attendance, they will attract more than 2.5 million visitors. Here’s a rundown of some of the ones you won’t want to miss.
More than a dozen tall ships will descend on Boston Harbor this coming week as part of festivities to commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812.
Mexico’s only tall ship is now docked in Boston. It arrived at the Seaport World Trade Center Sunday morning, and will be open for public tours today through Thursday.
