On this first day of spring, many in our port cities are getting ready for the upcoming shipping season.  In anticipation of all the activity, folks on Thursday night came together for the Annual Blessing of the Port.

Duluth-Superior Port Executive Director Vanta Coda showed his sincere appreciation for the long-honored event.

"It's a special thing you guys do here to recognize the community of mariners and the port and it's culture is just wonderful," Coda said.

The non-denominational service is a chance for mariners, port workers and their families to celebrate and pray for the upcoming shipping season and for those who work in the industry.

The annual event is hosted by the Twin Ports Ministry to Seafarers.
