Now in its ninth year, this event has grown into the region's biggest harbor festival. Held on Governors Island, New York; Maxwell Place Park, Hoboken, New Jersey; and dozens of In Your Neighborhood locations around New York Harbor, the event draws thousands of people to the water for a day of fun.
