November 2023/Currents Newsletter
Maritime Fun Fact: Did you know the Port is the only deep-water port in the South Bay area? This is what allows cargo ships to come and go.
As the holiday season approaches and we begin to reflect on 2023, we would like to take a moment to offer special thanks to those who have been a part of the Port community this year. Without your support and involvement, the achievements we made this year would not have been possible.
One of our strategic initiatives this past year was to increase community engagement at the Port. In May, we kicked off the summer with our first ever lighted drone show and closed out the warm summer with our annual PortFest celebration October 7, where we welcomed nearly 1,500 guests to see behind-the-scenes maritime activities and enjoy boat rides, local vendors, food trucks, live music and more.
This month's issue of Currents will also introduce you to our newly elected officers for the Port's Board of Commissioners, share information about our recent emergency preparedness exercise and announce the final 2023 Rock the Dock concert line up.
It is a true honor to be a vital part of the broader Silicon Valley region. We look forward to continuing to engage the community in our operations in 2024 and beyond.
