Harborfest is returning to Port Washington Sunday to bring a day of fun along the Manhasset Bay.

The festival, which operates from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., will feature a variety of craft vendors, live entertainment, cruises in the bay, games, fire boat demonstrations and much more along the town dock, Manhasset Bay and Lower Main Street.

A new photography exhibit, “Port Washington – Through My Lens” by Port Washington resident and photographer Roy Schneider, will also be featured in the Tugboat Museum.

A food court will be offering a “taste of Port Washington” for attendees to experience throughout the day.

The purpose of the festival is to “[celebrate Port Washington’s] nautical heritage and environmental awareness,” according to a flyer for the event.

The festival is presented by the Town of North Hempstead and the Port Washington Chamber of Commerce.

Admission to the festival is free, along with free parking, shuttle sand trollies. Shuttle buses and trollies will run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. from the Port Washington Rail Road Station and Manorhaven Park to the Town Dock.

Sails, cruises and some games will be offered for a fee.

Sunset cruises will also be offered on Saturday, the day before the event, at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on the Elixir yacht. Tickets can be purchased in advance on the Long Island Boat Rentals website.
