Fleet Week is a popular event in New York?s calendar that many look forward to. This traditional event sees military ships of the US Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard dock in the city. As the crews flood the city streets a sense of excitement is infused into the air and celebrations are held around the city for the sea service men and women. The event features many demonstrations and displays of the capabilities of the crews and public tours of the ships. The parade of ships in the harbour is a highlight but the celebrations on Memorial Day steal the show.
