Stanton Communications Supports Star-Spangled Sailabration in Baltimore
On June 13, 2012, more than 40 tall ships and Navy vessels arrived in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for Star-Spangled Sailabration, the week-long maritime festival and air show to launch three years of War of 1812 Bicentennial celebrations in the state. The event attracted thousands of people to the city, and not only included free tours of the ships for visitors, but also the premiere of a new symphonic work, and the Star-Spangled Air Show featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
Stanton Communications supported the efforts by driving awareness and participation in many of the activities and events during Sailabration. As a result, the state of Maryland and city of Baltimore received prominent coverage in numerous print, online and broadcast channels with the clear message that Star-Spangled Sailabration was the event to kick off the three-year commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. Placements include The Baltimore Sun, The Washington Post, Toronto Star, C-SPAN, local TV stations, and many more.
In addition to Sailabration, the Office of Tourism also held its annual Maryland Traditions Folklife Festival this past weekend, and Stanton Communications helped to garner media interest in the many living traditions from across the state.
