Don't want to fight the crowds? Can't take the afternoon off work? You can watch the 'Parade of Sail' from several different live cameras.

The Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center has two cameras looking at the canal, one facing towards the lake and one facing towards the bridge.

There are also a handful of other angles from other locations around the harbor, and those can be found at

The parade begins around 1:30, but there is action all day as the ships leave the harbor for the parade.
