More than a dozen tall ships and a six-story-high Rubber Duck are scheduled to sail into Los Angeles’ harbor at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the start of the Tall Ships Festival L.A.

The duck, an inflatable art project that’s turned up in cities around the world, will lead the parade.

Before the event begins, ships are to gather around noon in the waters off Point Fermin Park at South Gaffey Street and Paseo del Mar before sailing into the main channel.

Best high points to watch the action: Point Fermin and Angeles Gate Park at the Korean Bell (Gaffey and 37th streets). Both should offer good views of the lineup.
