GALLERIES: Sailfest 2016
Sunday's cloudy weather with constant threats of rain may have kept some away from Sailfest's last day, but most participants said the three-day event had been a success even if it was not as busy as last year.
Cloudy skies didn’t keep thousands of people from crowding the city for the second day of Sailfest, which on Saturday featured the typical fried food and rides but also served as the backdrop for a small demonstration in support of black Americans affected by police violence.
The relative quiet on City Pier Friday afternoon was not expected to last long. Sailfest attracts an estimated 300,000 over its three-day run in the city and Friday is just the start, according to event director Barbara Neff.
