Independence Seaport Museum is launching the Old City Seaport Festival, a weekend-long festival with Tall Ships, food, live music, crafts, vendors and activities along the waterfront at Independence Seaport Museum.

Old City Seaport Festival kicks off Friday, October 5 with a majestic parade of boats along Penn’s Landing followed by two days of deck and river tours aboard Tall Ships, music, food and maritime fun for the whole family. The Festival comes to a close with a bang when the Tall Ships take to the river for a pirate battle and sunset sail.
