It’s Wednesday of Rose Festival Week, and the fleet is heading upriver to join the festivities. Today, ship watchers on the river between Astoria and Portland will see four military ships traveling: One US Navy ship, two Canadian Navy ships, and one USCG cutter. All ships will leave Astoria in the morning and arrive in Portland sometime in the afternoon.

The USS Montgomery is part of this year’s Rose Festival Fleet. She’ll be open for tours through Sunday at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. For more info see the Rose Festival 2024 website.
