The Black Pearl can't make Bay City's Tall Ship Celebration.

The sloop Providence ship was to be one of 13 ships at the festival next week. It was filmed as a pirate ship and merchant ship for "Pirates of the Caribbean Two: Dead Man's Chest," starring Johnny Depp.

But officials say the ship couldn't get through one of the locks in the Erie Canal in New York State that was damaged after heavy rainfall in the region.
