Are you ready? Can you feel the excitement building?
Just 7 more days until the 23rd running of the Great North River Tugboat race and Competitions!
See mighty feats of strength as the tugs battle for the prize.
Be right in the middle of the action on our Spectator Boat as it races alongside the tugs.
Watch the tugboats churn up the Hudson River as they race to the finish!
But wait, that’s not all… there’s the Line Toss competitions…
Line up… cruise in… nice and slow… and hurrrrrrl the rope as hard as you can, while aiming for that teeny, tiny bollard…
And don’t forget the ever popular Popeye® Spinach eating contests. I heard through the grapevine that some of you guys are training for the big green bowl…
I’m betting the competition will be fierce this year!!
There’s also tattoo contests, and the tug-mascot competition, music, and much more! It’s great fun for the whole family!
I hope you’ll come join us next Sunday 6 September at Pier 84!
See you at the races!!
