FiDi Families is excited to announce we are a media sponsor of the annual “City of Water Day”. Now in its 12th year, this annual event is a free harbor-wide day organized by Waterfront Alliance and its partners to get people to, on, and in the water to celebrate our waterfront and champion a climate-resilient New York Harbor.
A Waterfront Festival at Piers 16 and 17 in Lower Manhattan’s Seaport District will offer visitors the chance to get to know local marine life; participate in crafts and science experiments, and meet the many organizations that connect us to our waterfront.
Nearby, the Con Edison Cardboard Kayak Race will delight fans of all ages, as 15 teams build and race cardboard boats. Free PortNYC Boat Tours will be offered across New York City, and there will be 50+ free satellite events throughout the region to celebrate our coastline and champion a climate-resilient New York Harbor. Experience your waterfront on City of Water Day!
The Howard Hughes Corporation® returns as the event’s presenting sponsor. The South Street Seaport Museum is at the helm as this year’s festival partner, offering visitors to Piers 16 and 17 in Lower Manhattan’s Seaport District exciting opportunities to get to know local marine life; participate in crafts, science experiments, and other water-related activities; and learn about the work of the many organizations that connect New Yorkers to our waterfront, work towards resiliency, and protect
and preserve our resources. The Con Edison Cardboard Kayak Race will return to Lower Manhattan on City of Water Day, and free PortNYC Boat Tours on all kinds of vessels, from tall ships to tugboats, will be offered from homeport docks throughout New York City.
Look out for the FiDi Families tent and join us for a fun craft and snacks!
