PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — The big ships did not come into port for the Rose Festival last year due to budget cuts, but they’re back this June.

Fleet Week is returning to Portland as part of the Rose Festival.

A U.S. Navy destroyer ship and a cruiser will be on display on the Portland waterfront, as will two Coast Guard ships and a ship from the Royal Canadian Navy. The ships will begin arriving June 4th and June 6th, and set sail again June 9. Admission to tour the ships is free, but most ships set their own schedules.

And if you’re on a Canadian ship, you are subject to Canadian laws.
