It’s summertime, so get up and get out on the waterfront because City of Water Day is back for its ninth year on Governors Island. This free, family-friendly festival will take place on Saturday, July 16th, and will feature a wide breadth of activities for both adults and children. Every summer, the Waterfront Alliance sponsors City of Water Day to showcase the beauty of New York’s and New Jersey’s waterfronts. Partake in activities such as paddle boarding, kayaking, and boat tours, with plenty of delicious food to go around. Children’s activities are sponsored by Disney, and will include face painting, arts and crafts, and more. The festival has grown into the region’s largest harbor festival, so join thousands of likeminded families and have yourself some summer fun.
