 Community Partners joining us at the Armed Forces Day Festival!

With a spectacular view of Lady Liberty herself and the Hudson River skyline, it will be time for family fun and great competition, while allowing us to honor and reflect upon the young people serving this great nation. Along with military displays and demonstrations represented by every branch of our nations armed forces, there will be music, food, and vendors.  The festival will officially commence with the Liberty Lightning 9K and the posting of our nation's colors and an official announcement by the Festival Grand Marshal, the Marine Corps 29th Commandant, General Alfred M. Gray.  There will be something to see for everyone and more importantly, by supporting this great cause, we will be supporting our veterans and the community.​​
