All tickets for 90 minute excursion in Owen Sound sold out, boarding passes going fast.
There appears to be a lot of interest in the Tall Ships coming to Owen Sound next month.
Project Co-ordinator Paul Eichhorn tells us all of the tickets for the 90 minute excursion on the tall ships are sold out.
And Eichhorn adds only a third of the boarding passes to tour the three ships are still available.
The Tall Ships will be in Owen Sound from Friday August 16th to Sunday August 18th.
The Pride of Baltimore II, the Fair Jeanne, the Playfair and Liana's Ransom will all be moored along the west harbour, just north of the historic CNR station.
Event Assistant Dan Blenkinsop says the three day event also features live music, children's activities, food, artisans and marine related interactive displays.
To mark the ships arrival -- a special Captains’ VIP Welcome Dinner will take place at the Best Western Inn on the Bay on Thursday, August 15th.
A limited number of tickets ($60 excluding HST) are available.
Owen Sound is one of 15 ports of call, on the Tall Ships 1812 Tour, presented by Redpath.
The final day will feature a spectacular Parade of Sail as the ships depart for their next event of the Tall Ships 1812 Tour.
The ships are coming to Owen Sound in part thanks to a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
