Maritime history comes alive in Waterford this weekend for the annual Waterford Tugboat Round-Up, when more than two dozen tugs chug into the port. Take a tour of the tugs, shop the vendors and taste the food. In addition to tours of the vessels and other displays, there is an ample supply of children’s activities, boat rides, fireworks and family fun.
Festivities get underway at 4pm today (September 6) with music by veteran folk musician George Ward, followed by the Tugboat Parade from the Port of Albany, which is expected to begin arriving at about 5pm.
And, of course, there’s plenty of music at the Round-Up, too.
Here’s the schedule of music for the 2013 Waterford Tugboat Round-Up:
TODAY (FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6)
4pm: George Ward
8pm: All Nite Long
SUNDAY: (SEPTEMBER 8)
