The annual Opening Day on the Bay shows off over 100 historic workboats, fireboats, towboats, classic and contemporary craft.

For 2017 the parade will be joined by The Lady Washington Tall Ship and the Hawaiian Chieftan who will have a ceremonial battle sail before the opening of the parade. Cannons will sound as the two ships fire at each other (minus the actual cannons, of course)

This marks the official start of the San Francisco boating season.
