A Photographic Tour of Baltimore's Star-Spangled Sailabration

by Stacy Tharp 2. July 2012

The Star-Spangled Sailabration celebrated the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the writing of the Star-Spangled Banner. From 1st Mariner Bank's Canton branch and headquarters, we had a fantastic view of the tall ships and naval vessels sailing into the Inner Harbor, as well as the U.S. Navy Blue Angels practicing their aviation acts. Here are some shots taken by a few of our talented employees.

Tall ships from all around the world graced us with their presence during the Sailbration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Uh oh...are we under attack?!

 

 

 

Nope, that's just the Urban Pirates Family Adventure Cruise...whew!
