The ships arriving for Fleet Week sailed into the New York Harbor Wednesday morning, greeted by a salute from the cannons at Fort Hamilton Army base.
This year fleet week overlaps with Memorial Day weekend and we’ll be following along on Sunday when there will be a Marine Day in Prospect Park, featuring interactive and aviation static displays, demonstrations, and a performance by the USMC Battle Color Detachment.
2 days until our first performance @FleetweekNYC!!!
