PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The largest tall ship event in Maine’s largest city in 15 years is continuing.

Many of the dozen participating ships - including the Coast Guard’s Eagle and the El Galeon Andalucia from Spain - are going to be open for tours starting Sunday in Portland Harbor.

General admission is $15. Admission is free for children 5 and under and for active military.

Sunday’s event is being capped at Merrill Auditorium, where the Kotzschmar organ will play alongside “Old Ironsides,” a silent movie from 1923. A Maine-built ship was refitted as the USS Constitution for the movie.
