The 2015 Greenport Tall Ships Challenge continued on Sunday with a street fair and more tours of the high-masted vessels.
The event’s signature ship, the Hermione, will arrive on Monday and stay for two days.
A one-day pass for individual is $20 with family passes being sold for $50. The event is $15 for seniors and $10 for children.
Tours of the ships will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Front and Main streets will be closed to vehicular traffic from the intersection of 3rd and Front streets to Center and Main during those hours.
The event is hosted by the Village of Greenport and the Greenport Business Improvement District.
