Fleet Week 2016 Celebration Kicks Off in New York City

The 28th Annual Fleet Week in New York City is underway starting today! Fleet Week is a celebration of our Nation's military sea services, including the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines and the U.S. Coast Guard.

It is an unparalleled opportunity for the citizens of New York and the surrounding tri-state area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services. The weeklong celebration has been held nearly every year since 1984.

Check out the schedule of events for info on how you can join the celebration, or just look to NYC's waterways as the team from Staten Island Advance did for this video above.
