Fleet Week

 In the early part of October, a visitor to San Francisco could be convinced that the city had been taken over by a military coup. Fighter planes will shake the city’s buildings. Men and women in uniform will litter the streets. Naval ships and amphibious vehicles will be parked at the city’s docks. Yet, despite the appearance of a hostile takeover, it will just be a celebration. The 2016 San Francisco Fleet Week runs from Oct. 3–Oct. 10.
  
Longtime residents of the city will know the drill, as Fleet Week’s activities will be much the same as they’ve been in the past. Event staples such as the Parade of Ships and the Blue Angels will be back. Free tours of naval ships and amphibious vehicles will be offered to interested parties. A Humanitarian Assistance Village will be set up on the Marina Green, where residents can see interactive demonstrations of the ability of military and civilian agencies to respond to natural or manmade disasters.
