The Waterfront Festival Celebrates its 25th Year

Harbor Nights, Harbor Lights

Stroll the waterfront, enjoy musical entertainment, sample the food court delights and watch as the dusk becomes night and we light up the beautiful Watkins Glen Seneca Harbor Park!

Nearly Famous Cardboard Boat Regatta

Stroll through the Concourse de Cardboard, check out the cardboard boats and meet the crews. Then laugh and applaud the bold and adventurous Captains and Crews of the Cardboard Boat Regatta as they bravely sail their cardboard crafts from launch to finish line!

Just some of the shenanigans you’ll see!
