Cape Cod The Blessing of The Fleet

Every summer fishing boats at Provincetown are augmented on a designated Sunday to form a grand fleet for the ceremony of blessing. This is one of the most colorful and spectacular events of the Cape Cod summer season.

Fishermen from Plymouth and other towns, their boats newly painted and bright with flags and pennants, set forth from their home ports to join the other fishing boats at Provincetown. To be one of the many craft sharing in the procession and blessing of the fleet is a great honor.

Not to participate is equally a disgrace, and means sharp loss of face and standing among the other boats. The “Blessing of the Fleet” is a happy, colorful event, witnessed every year by thousands of residents and visitors.
