    Taking place in the harbor and nearby waters of America's oldest seaport, the Gloucester Schooner Festival honors the major role the fishing schooner has played in the heritage of Gloucester and the eastern seaboard. Old and new, large and small- a variety of schooners will visit Gloucester Harbor and delight all comers. A spectacular highlight of the Gloucester Schooner Festival is the Parade of Sail on Sunday morning, as the participating schooners make their way through the harbor and out past the breakwater, to the Mayor's Race starting area off Eastern Point. Cape Ann Schooners: Adventure and Thomas E. Lannon, leading the Parade of Sail, Lewis H. Story, flagship for the Essex Shipbuilding Museum, and Ardelle flagship for Maritime Gloucester. The Bald Eagle and Sugar Babe from Gloucester and Green Dragon from Manchester.
