Last minute preparations are in full swing over at WHC HQ for this Sunday’s 23rd Annual Great North River Tugboat Race & Competitions!


For a glimpse of last years race, check out this video by Phyllis Featherstone:


The action starts-up around 9:30 am as the tugs start arriving for the big Parade of Tugs! If you want to be right in the middle of the action, racing alongside the tugs, get tickets to ride on our Spectator Boat. Or you can watch from Pier 84 (w44th St/12 Ave) for free!

Weather is forecast to be perfect, sunny and clear, so it should be a banner day for the big event. Yay!

Only 4 more days!
