August 25, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

On Friday October 10th at 11am we are proud to welcome the 2014 Fleet Week’s Parade of Ships. You will want to catch the ships sailing into the San Francisco Bay beneath the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge.  Public visitation of many of the participating ships will be available for tours from Saturday Oct 11 through Monday Oct 13.

The Navy will release the ship names, docking and visiting procedures in mid-September. Visit www.fleetweek.us for updates.

The Navy’s Blue Angels will be back to dazzle the bay area with their thrilling high performance maneuvers over the San Francisco Bay. You can see them and the full air show in action Friday, Saturday and Sunday October 10-12 from 12:30PM-4PM.

A variety of family-oriented special events will be staged along the waterfront from PIER 39 to Marina Green. The Marina Green will host the “Humanitarian Assistance Village” demonstrating the Marine’s ability to support the Bay area and the world in response to natural disasters.  It is the most important fun you will have all year.

In addition to the public events, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Services and other Bay area first responders will conduct joint humanitarian aid and disaster response exercises.  The interoperable exercises allow civilian first responders and emergency management officials the opportunity to train with military units tasked with providing assistance and relief during a catastrophic event like an earthquake.  There will be a press conference and media availability on September 10, 2014 to discuss exercise and training details.

Spectators can tune in to KSFO for live event narration.

The event is free however premium tickets are available with an unobstructed view.  Visit www.fleetweek.us or call 415-306-0911
