Port Fest Baltimore 2015


Every day at noon, the Consol Energy terminal sounds its horn to announce the shift.

On Friday, November 4, the port community invites all terminals, facilities, ships and vehicles with whistles, horns and klaxons (cannons too!) to join in at noon and ring the port in a final salute to the indomitable

Helen Delich Bentley.

Participants, including vessels in the harbor, are asked to pause and observe a moment of silence at 11:59am.

Facilities and ships may strike 8 Bells to observe the moment of silence.

At high noon, allow the Consol horn to sound for a few seconds, and then join in.

Sound your horns and whistles for 30 seconds or more.

Cannons may fire as the Horns Fade.

If you plan to participate, please RSVP to

Captain Eric Nielsen at president@mdpilots.com or Joseph Wyatt at jwyatt@mdpilots.com.
