After a trip up to Maryland, the Tall Ship Providence returned home to Alexandria this weekend.

The ship returned with some fanfare, Zebra reported, with the Woodrow Wilson Bridge opening and hundreds of locals cheering it on from the shore.

The ship left back in April and had a touch-up while it was away. Now the ship will remain dockside as part of the new Senator John Warner Maritime Heritage Center.
