Tall Ships at Navy Pier: Aug. 24 – 29, 2010
Twenty Ships. Six Days. Once-in-a-Lifetime. Only at Navy Pier. A thrilling experience awaits you and your family this summer at Pepsi® Tall Ships Chicago 2010 at Navy Pier!
Navy Pier proudly welcomes more than 20 majestic and historic tall ships from around the world, August 24 — 29. For the first time in Chicago, a tall ships festival of this size will be located in one place: Navy Pier. Visitors can view all of them, board up to 12 of the vessels, and even take daily sails aboard five of the tall ships.
The pageantry kicks-off with an opening day Parade of Sail on Lake Michigan, starting at 4 p.m. on August 24. As these storied ships with their billowing sails make their way to Navy Pier’s docks, they’ll form the perfect backdrop for the official Opening Ceremony at 5 p.m. You can even sail on a tall ship DURING the Parade of Sail and be on deck as you get a breathtaking view of the ships as they sail past Navy Pier
