San Pedro will again host the “Tall Ships Festival” in 2014, scheduled for August 20th thru the 24th. A dozen ships from all over the world are expected to sail into the Port of Los Angeles for the 5 day festivities.
The timing of the event will help to showcase the new $40 million dollar addition to San Pedro’s waterfront; the “Downtown Harbor Project” featuring a new harbor and new landscaped town square, still under construction just north of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum.
More than a quarter million people are expected to turn out for the festivities. A port spokesman said that the port is drawing more and more visitors each year with all of the new activities and events taking place there.
