The fun starts at 10 am on Governors Island and at Maxwell Place Park in Hoboken, NJ and includes boat tours on all kinds of vessels, from tall ships to tugboats; free rowing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and the highly anticipated Con Edison Cardboard Kayak Race; and the Waterfront Activity Fair and Disney Children’s Activities offer something for the whole family.

You’ll also find loads of In Your Neighborhood events all over New York harbor, – like touring the M/V Loujaine and the Gowanus Bay Terminal in Brooklyn, kayaking the Hackensack River at Laurel Hill Park, Secaucus or taking a ride in a dragon boat at the Worlds Fair Marina in Flushing, Queens – there are dozens of events from which to choose!

I’ll be on Governor’s Island bright and early tomorrow – see you all there!
