The PICTON CASTLE survived a mine explosion underneath it that lifted the 300-ton ship out of the ocean with little sustained damage.
The ship will travel from the province of Huelva of southern Spain.
"Mama Duck," the 6 stories high rubber duck that weighs 11 tons will be at the Bayfront this Summer. You will be able to see this yellow duck at the Tall Ships Festival this August.
The ship weights 740 tons and currently operates as a charting vessel for special events.
The Tall Ships Festival itself will feature day sails, live entertainment, a festival marketplace, food and more.
Organizers expect ticket sales for Tall Ships Erie 2019 to be brisk.
The festival starts with the Parade of Sail on Aug. 22 and runs from Aug. 23-25, 2019.
