Event producer Craig Samborski (left) on Tall Ships Duluth 2013, which promises to be a tremendous event for Duluth on July 25-29: "Ticket sales are brisk, outpacing the 2010 event by about double. Tickets have been sold in 32 states and three Canadian provinces. Given the current pace, I expect the 2013 numbers will easily surpass 2010. We've added additional space for the event behind Grandma's Sports Garden. We have 10 ships booked, including the majestic Sorlandet from Norway, US Brig Niagara, and Pride of Baltimore II -- and we've added more features to the festival to make the event a great family attraction."
