Today, Friday September 5th, 2008, marks the beginning of the 24th annual Tall Ships Festival in Dana Point. This evening, eight tall ships will parade into Dana Point (from 5-7pm). The remainder of the weekend will be filled two full days of ships, activities, music,food, Polynesian dancers, cannon battles & even pirates. For a schedule of the weekend’s events & activities, go HERE. Some activities & tours require tickets, for pricing & to purchase passes go HERE.

Definitely fun for the whole family. I know my boys will love the cannon battles & pirate storytelling, & my hubby will get a kick out of touring all the different ships.
