If you're excited about next month's big tall ships festival on the Bayfront, there's word of a chance for you to show off that excitement.

The Flagship Niagara League's putting it all together. They say they need 300 more volunteers for the festival, which is set for August 22-25.

They already have about 350 people signed up for the four day festival.

It's expected to feature at least 13 vessels and a return appearance by the world's largest rubber duck.

You can find out more about those volunteer opportunities at Tall Ships Erie's website.
