Other peace activists will meet on land near Pier 66 on the
waterfront at the same time for a nonviolent demonstration against weapons of war. Demonstrators on land often meet: on the rooftop of the four story Bell Harbor International Conference Center at Pier 66 with the Navy band and Seafair dignitaries; on Pier 62/63, the open pier just south of Bell Harbor Marina; or between both locations.

2011 will mark the 10th year the Peace Fleet has met the Navy at Seafair.
