Wave conditions (up to 10-foot swells) caused the USCGC Bristol Bay and USCGC Mobil Bay to arrive ahead of Monday’s scheduled Parade of Ships.
The USCGC Hollyhock and the R/V Laurentian are expected to arrive this afternoon, said Coast Guard Festival officials.
The official Parade of Ships is scheduled for about 1 p.m. along the Channel. People are encouraged to stake out their spots early and give the Coast Guard a big welcome.
