200 years ago the War of 1812 broke out. Over several years, war waged between the United States against Great Britain and one of the most famous events in Baltimore history, the bombardment of Fort McHenry, took place. This year’s Star Spangled Sailabration, which starts Wednesday, honors the milestone.
More than three dozen tall ships and navy vessels will make their way into the Inner Harbor from all around the world.
Many of the tall ships left Norfolk on Monday, where they were part of another historic festival.
But if you don’t want to fight the crowds at the Inner Harbor this weekend, there are plenty of other places for you to go to admire the grand ships.
There are several locations along the Harbor and Chesapeake Bay that offer views.
Specifically the Sailabration organizers recommend Canton Waterfront Park, Fort McHenry, and Fort Armistead Park in Hawkins Point.
