Japan’s King of the Sea, one of the world’s largest tall ships had arrived in Richmond on May 3rd, 2017 as part of the city’s Canada 150 celebrations. April Toh and her LINC 8 AM class arrived at Garry Point Park early to welcome the ship's arrival as it pulled majestically into the dock to the drumming of Taiko.

Looking at all the megawatt smiles in the photo - it was clear everyone had a blast!"
