Time Out says

Head out for a weekend of music and celebrations from Fulton St. to Pier 17 in the Seaport (Friday, July 1 to Monday, July 4). The neighborhood will be hosting festivities from live music performances to pop-up bars and food trucks and a larger-than-life sand beach.

The 120-square-foot beach between Piers 16 and 17, will offer lounge chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys as well as rotating food trucks from some of New York’s hottest establishments and pop-up bars with festive libations (bars are only on Saturday & Sunday). There will also be a beachside main stage with performances all weekend long from local up-and-coming talent, New York City’s best buskers and a series of tribute bands singing summer beach tunes, including Walshy Fire of Major Lazer (Sunday, July 3 at 7pm) and Eli Escobar (Friday, July 1 at 7pm) as well as Jimmy Kenny and the Pirate Beach Band, Sara Ontaneda, Endless Summer and NYC BuskerBall.

On Fulton Street, you'll be able to enjoy the neighborhood's newest concept bar Makitiki where there will be live music throughout the weekend, bar snacks and tropical-style cocktails. The Seaport will also debut a sculpture from world-renowned sand sculptor John Gowdy, a retired New Jersey firefighter who has been sculpting from sand for more than 30 years. Visitors can watch Gowdy create the sculpture live on Fulton and South Streets starting Wednesday, June 29. The sculpture will be up through July 4.

Manhattan by Sail, the Seaport’s newest addition, will be offering a family-friendly 45-minute sail along the East River on Saturday, July 2. Tickets are $5 per person, and all ages are welcome. All public events will be free to attend.
