The Tall Ships of America tour will make a stop in Greenport Harbor this Independence Day weekend, where six vessels from around the world will dock for the Greenport Village Tall Ships Challenge 2015. 

Five of the six ships, which hail from four different countries, will be open for tours from Saturday, July 4, through Tuesday, July 7. The event’s signature ship, the Hermione, will arrive on Monday and stay for two days.

A one-day pass for an individual is $20, with family passes being sold for $50. The event is $15 for seniors and $10 for children.

Tours of the ships will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Front and Main streets will be closed to vehicular traffic from the intersection of 3rd and Front streets to Center and Main streets during those hours.

The event, which is expected to bring tens of thousands of visitors to the village, is being hosted by the Village of Greenport and the Greenport Business Improvement District.
