The 33rd annual Lake Union Wooden Boat Festival is set for Saturday and Sunday at The Center for Wooden Boats at Lake Union Park in Seattle.

More than 150 classic wooden boats from small wooden skiffs to those more than 90 feet will be on display.

Some "must-see" boats include the 101-foot schooner W.N. Ragland, owned for more than 35 years by musician Neil Young; the 133-foot topsail gaff schooner Adventuress, the festival's largest, built in 1913 as a pleasure yacht and used to hunt bowhead whales in the Southern Hemisphere; and the 127-foot two-masted gaff schooner Zodiac, built in 1928 for the heirs to the Johnson & Johnson fortune.

The event is free, with a suggested donation of $5 per person to The Center for Wooden Boats.
