There will be ships, and they will indeed be tall, when the Tall Ships Festival returns to Cleveland July 7 - 10.
Usually dropping anchor in Cleveland every three years, except for 2016 due to the RNC's invasion of the city, the festival kicks off with a parade of sail with eight traditional boats.
The event not only includes boarding time, but also waterfront activities, fireworks, live music and plenty of opportunities to learn about Cleveland maritime history.
Tickets start at $17 and are on sale now.
Of course, you can catch some of the action for free from Wendy Park and Voinovich Park at North Coast Harbor.
