PortFest 2018 set for full day of fun this Saturday

in A&E/Featured/Headline and

Maybe you’ve heard the old expression, “any port in a storm.”  But this Saturday, there’s only ONE port we all need to be – the Port of Redwood City for PortFest 2018.

There’s a full day of activities, with at least something for just about everyone (including food, drink and kids’ activities), but here are a few highlights:

If you get there at 10 a.m. for the official Welcome Ceremony (with official welcomes from Congresswoman Jackie Speier and Mayor Ian Bain), stick around right afterward for the “water cannon display” from Redwood City’s fire boat.

Then, starting at 10:30 a.m. (and also at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.), there are on-the-water tours of the harbor.  You’ll be out on the Bay for 45 minutes, on the Robert G. Brownlee, the floating research lab of the Marine Science Institute (make your reservation in advance here).

You can go old school, forget the engines, and join the Spinnaker Sailing School for a free sail boat ride, between noon and 3 p.m. (for this, you sign up on the spot).

Or if you’d prefer to stay on dry land, take a “Working Waterfront Tour”, led by the Seaport Industrial Association, and see some of what goes on day to day at the Port.  Tours are on the hour from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

It all happens at the Port, Seaport Court at Seaport Boulevard, this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, including a festival map, go here.
