Sunday's HarborFest at Port Washington's Town Dock saw sunny skies and plenty of attendees out for a beautiful day. 

Festival-goers enjoyed a juried craft show that featured nearly 100 quality craftspeople, with booths dotting lower Main Street.

They also had the chance to meet and learn more about local business owners and organizations.  

"We had about 19 volunteers sign up," said Vivian Moy, of the Port Washington Crisis Relief Team, which responded to community need in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and, later, a fire on Main Street that had displaced more than 50 people. "They ranged from EMTs to social media experts to social workers and even a baker. Some people said they were looking for us and were so glad to have found us so they could volunteer."

The “Art In The Park” organized by The Art Guild featured local artists displaying their work in Sunset Park, along the Manhasset Bay waterfront. Other atractions included a free Plein Air workshop for adults at 1:30 p.m. and a free clay workshop for children at 12 p.m. Button-making was offered throughout the day.

The 80-foot schooner, SoundWaters offered sails throughout the day. Local talent performed free family entertainment all day on the Family Fun Stage, and near the Town Dock's entrance. In addition a family-fun park was a big hit with the children.
