Tall Ships® New Orleans 2018 was a free event and open to the public. We hope you came down to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas to enjoy the tall ships while they were in town. We are most appreciative of our many donors who helped make this event possible. Here are just a few who contributed so much in time, energy and funds –
The event was made possible by the vision of Mr. Jim Huger of Premium Parking. That vision extended to Hancock-Whitney Bank and the many people on the Tall Ships Tricentennial Committee Board. (See About page for listing). Additionally, New Orleans Convention Company, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and New Orleans Tourism and Marketing Company.
There are so many people and organizations to thank. Starting with our ships! This was a maritime community effort -Port of of New Orleans, Louisiana Maritime Association, Moran Towing Corporation, Crescent River Port Pilot’s Association, and Associated Branch Pilots
