NYC Fleet Week

The Annual New York City Fleet Week will be taking place from May 24-30, and will feature events that honor and celebrate the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. The event began in 1984, and it is estimated that almost 5000 sailors, marines, and coastguards will be taking part in this year’s festivities. Most of the events are only about 15-25 minutes away from The Roger, so you will have plenty of opportunities to join in the festivities. Fleet Week begins with a parade of ships in New York Harbor on Wednesday, May 24. Throughout the week, there will be opportunities for the public to tour some of the ships that are used by the US armed forces. Other highlights of Fleet Week include an opportunity to meet with former NASA astronauts and Navy pilots, US Coast Guard search and rescue demonstrations, and even a free screening of Top Gun. You are sure to enjoy the wide variety of events and exhibits that Fleet Week has to offer.
