More than a dozen ships are slated to participate, from the 18th-century privateer replica the Spirit of Dana Point to the Irving Johnson and Exy Johnson, a pair of 110-foot wooden brigantines anointed the “Official Tall Ships and Maritime Ambassadors of the City of Los Angeles.” This year, Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s gargantuan rubber duck—the biggest in the world—will float alongside them. It joins other nautically themed entertainment stations that will include several giant movie screens, live music stages, cannon demonstrations, and even sword fighting.

Tall Ships Festival

It's a parade like no other. On a summer afternoon, they approach: schooners, yachts, brigantines—even fire boats and battleships. White sails billow grandly and woodwork gleams from the docks, and things remain exciting once the vessels drop anchor. Guests at the Tall Ships Festival can experience both their majesty and their intricacy by signing up for group tours of their interiors, where they can glimpse the captain's quarters, stand in awe of the heavy artillery, and witness the vast stores of canoes required to feed them every day.
