Fleet Week

Every day, through Aug 2, 8 am
This is an online event · Online
It's the start of Fleet Week in Portland, and that means eight massive ships from the US Navy, US Coast Guard, and the Royal Canadian Navy, along with some old historic ships, will be floating down the Willamette River. Normally, this would be the part where we tell you to head down there with a camera, and marvel at the scores of sailors swarming downtown. But because of this pandemic, none of that will be happening in-person. It will be happening online, though, streamed straight to your living room daily, with events including a cruise from Astoria to Portland, Stories from the USS Oregon submarine, Navy Band concerts, and more.
