May 20 – May 21, 2017

With a spectacular view of Lady Liberty herself and the Hudson River skyline, it will be time for family fun and with the Liberty Lightning 9K (8am), 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 nation’s armed forces, there will be music, food, and vendors.

Displays include Helicopters, a V-22 Osprey, and Armored vehicles, and many active military hardware to see up close and personal. Military Demonstrations, and performances by the 63rd Army Band and The United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon and Drum and Bugle Corps.
