Port of Call:
Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6
The Tug Pegasus and the Lehigh Valley No. 79 christened Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6 with historic ships and maritime programming in 2010. Returning again in 2011, they have produced free tug trips, sea shanties, music concerts, camp tours, lectures, a Showboat Shazzam circus, a "Tug & Barge Journey of a Lifetime Cruise", and community fundraisers honoring Regina Myer and Nancy Webster (2010) and Peter Stanford (2011) with "Tug & Barge" awards. Working with Fisher-Price, they partnered with "Thomas the Tank Engine" to launch a dvd and toy line advertising campaign.
