Time Out says
Keep your eyes on the horizon as more than a dozen grand boats sail into the Port of LA for the Tall Ships Festival. The four-day fest kicks off with the Parade of Sail, where an extra $150 will get you aboard a featured vessel as it sails into the port. Each day, the fest features on-board tours, land-only admission and daily sailing opportunities. Elsewhere on the waterfront, attendees will find musical performances, nautical demos—a la sword fighting and cannon blasts—and a food and craft fair.
