Trinidad Tidings: Blessing of the Fleet and an anniversary celebration

The annual Blessing of the Fleet will take place, rain or sunshine, at the Trinidad Bay Memorial Park at Edwards and Trinity streets overlooking Trinidad Bay on Thanksgiving morning at 10 a.m.  

Expressions and tokens of gratitude, blessings and well wishes will be given to the captains and crews of Trinidad’s commercial fishing fleet. Susan Rotwein and other wives and friends of the fishing community prepare for the event.

All of the community is invited to gather in gratitude for the fishermen, who remain at the heart of Trinidad, and for blessings for the abundance from the sea that we all share.
