This article is more than 8 years old.

You may have noticed the crowds in Boston this weekend, and that many in the crowds were dressed in white. That's because the city of Boston is celebrating this year's Operation Sail as it coincides with Navy Week, Harborfest and the bicentennial of the War of 1812. That's all before Wednesday's grand finale — the Fourth of July.
