Oswego's H Lee White Maritime Museum hosts its summertime Festival of Ships, July 21-23 (Friday to Sunday), and the highlight will be a visit from the Nina and the Pinta, replicas of two of Christopher Columbus ships.

Mercedes Niess, executive director of the museum, was our guest on Sunday's Weekend Today in CNY, and says that in addition to the two 'antique' Caravelles, there are two other ships that will be open for public viewing as well, including a World War II vintage tugboat.
