This annual celebration of our nation’s Sea Services returns to the L.A. Waterfront for the fourth year with four days of free family-friendly entertainment. Always a popular highlight are the public ship tours, where you can get an up-close look at active U.S. military ships and meet active US Navy and Coast Guard personnel in their working environment. There will be many military displays and demonstrations, including aerial flyovers and the Navy’s parachute team, the Leap Frogs. New this year will be an obstacle course competition between teams from across Southern California, while returning favorite attractions will include a kids’ STEM Expo (and the high school robotics competition), live entertainment, a First Responders Village, and a Veteran’s Village. The Galley Wars culinary competition will be served up Sunday afternoon, while the 11th Annual 5.3-mile “Conquer the Bridge” takes place Labor Day morning over the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
