The parade and start and finish are best viewed from Long Wharf Park (near High and Water Streets in Cambridge, MD), where there will be food and gift vendors. A radio-controlled skipjack regatta will take place from the docks at Long Wharf, providing competitive entertainment while the full-size skipjacks are on the middle legs of their race.
