Bigger crowds expected for Tall Ships Festival viewing in Algoma

One of the best viewing locations for the vessels sailing in the Nicolet Bank Tall Ship festival will be available in Algoma.  Crescent Beach will host the Nicolet Bank Tall Ships Muster at 1:00 PM July 30th. That's when the ships are expected to be at full sail as they make their way from Green Bay.  The event will also include beach games for all, a ducky pool and competitive coloring for kids.  Sara Krouse, Executive Director of the Algoma Chamber of Commerce, expects the muster to be better attended than 2016 because there's more promotion this time.



Former Door County Maritime Museum Executive Director Robert Desh will staff a swivel gun to fire salutes to the passing ships in hopes they'll fire salutes in return.  Anyone interest in the best views should arrive early.  Krouse says in 2016 Crescent Beach was already crowded by 11:00 AM.
