The sights, smells and sounds of authentic working tall ships is set to return to the Dana Point Harbor as the Ocean Institute hosts the 30th annual Toshiba Tall Ships Festival.
The event kicks off Friday, Sept. 5 with a sunset parade of the nine participating vessels in the waters just off of the Harbor.
The festival continues through the weekend with live music, food, arts, crafts and demonstrations of seafaring days past by pirate reenactors.
Admission to the Institute and ship deck tours is $5 for members and $8 for non-members, ages 3 and up. Tickets to sail aboard a tall ship during a mock cannon battle are $40-$65 and available for ages 4 and up.
For tickets and information, contact the Ocean Institute, at 24200 Dana Point Harbor Drive in Dana Point, 949.496.2274, www.ocean-institute.org.
