A chilly, drizzly morning didn’t prevent people from coming out to Baileys Harbor for the Blessing of the Fleet Festival on Saturday. Arts and crafts were on the Baileys Harbor Town Hall lawn. There were a few tents set up for art vendors. Paddle races were held as well but the main reason for the event was to make sure boats and crew remain safe over the summer. Commercial and personal boats were blessed by Pastor Sue Gunderson from Immanuel Lutheran Church in Baileys Harbor.
The Blessing of the Fleet Festival continues on Sunday at the Baileys Harbor Town Marina from 9 AM to 5 PM. Video of the blessing can be found below.
