Pride II Homecoming ★ September 21
September 21 | 9:45 am-4:00 pm
Please welcome our Pride home on Saturday, September 21!
Pride II participated in the TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® Great Lakes 2019, taking part in eight large tall ship festivals, visiting ports in four of the five Great Lakes, welcoming thousands of visitors on board, and winning two of three tall ship races.
Plan to be on the Baltimore waterfront to welcome her home from her summer voyage in the Great Lakes. She will sail past historic Fells Point and into the Inner Harbor with cannons blazing! Her Homecoming Salute to Baltimore will begin around 9:45 a.m. off Fells Point. She will reach the Inner Harbor at about 10 a.m., then sail back to Broadway Pier in Fells Point for a 10:30 docking.
Pride II will be escorted by the Baltimore City Fire Department’s fire boat #1, John R. Frazier. She will dock at Broadway Pier in Fells Point and open for free deck tours following a brief Welcome Home Celebration at 11 a.m., remaining open until 4 p.m. Click here to view the full weekend schedule.
