Navy Week will feature ships, tours

BLADE STAFF

The Navy is headed to Toledo for Navy Week, which commemorates the War of 1812’s bicentennial. Four modern naval and Coast Guard vessels, plus a reconstruction of one of the oldest ships, will be the focal points of the week-long event. A variety of activities will include meet-and-greets with Navy members, Navy Band musical performances, visits to area schools, and vessel tours, which will begin Aug. 24. The guided-missile frigate USS De Wert, coastal patrol boat USS Hurricane, the Coast Guard cutter Mobile Bay, frigate HMCS Ville de Quebec, and U.S. Brig Niagara, will parade up the Maumee River and be anchored at the Water Street docks and International Park for the event. The vessels will be in Toledo Aug. 23-26. For a detailed schedule of events, visit www.navyweek.org.
