Under sunny blue skies, the USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul arrived under the aerial lift bridge on Monday morning.
The crew lined the decks, and visitors lined the pier to welcome her in.
She'll be commissioned on Saturday during an official ceremony. It is a ticketed event, and you did need to RSVP with the Navy ahead of time.
But you can attend a public event at Bent Paddle on Wednesday at 5pm.
The Navy League of the United States, Minnesota Council commissioned Bent Paddle to brew a special USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul beer for the ship's commissioning week. The beer graphics features the watercolor the Navy League commissioned from Duluthian John Salminen.
The beer is called Wayfinder Freedom North Star Pale Ale.
