Portland Rose Festival Fleet Week

It’s Fleet Week and the ships are coming to the Portland Rose Festival this weekend. Some of the tours start as early as 9 am Thursday, but you’ll have to wait until 9:30 am Friday if you want to see the big Navy ships. You’ll want to get there early because the lines are really long. I took the kids last year and we waited in line for about four hours. Most of the ships leave Monday morning, so expect delays. Note: the photos on this page were taken last year.
