Blessing of the Fleet wishes best for fishermen

A tradition dating back centuries will be on full display this Sunday as the annual Blessing of the Fleet occurs in Baileys Harbor. 


Fishermen are welcome to bring their boats to the blessing to start a safe and hopefully successful fishing season in Baileys Harbor, which is known for its rich fishing history in past years. The event first originated in Baileys Harbor, and then other communities joined on to the Blessing of the Fleet, making it more of a popular event than many will realize. Baileys Harbor Destination Director and Community Coordinator Cynde Ploor talks more about what the event really is and what it means to the community. 



The day of events begins at 9:00 a.m. with the Baileys Harbor farmers market that runs all the way up till 1:00 p.m., the time of the blessing. There will also be yoga in the park according to Ploor, and live music throughout the day as well.
