Reproductions of a Spanish Galleon and a Viking ship are among the attractions at this weekend’s Waterfront Festival. You can see them from the outside for free but adults pay $15 for ship-board tours. Find out how and why they dominated the oceans hundreds of years ago. The Viking ship sailed from Norway earlier this year in as historically authentic a way as possible.
