Twelve tall-mast ships are plying the waters of Commencement Bay this weekend for the Schooner Rendezvous. The festival runs through 6 tonight, then continues from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Foss Waterway Seaport in Tacoma.
Admission costs $5; parking also costs $5. The schooners are open for tours, and some offer sailings.
Organizers hope it will become an annual event to kick off the schooner sailing season in Puget Sound.
“It creates excitement on the waterfront, which is growing in its uniqueness and its beauty,” Stan Selden, president of the Tacoma Waterfront Association, said Saturday.
