Passover for Gays starts now. Fleet Week, a celebration of the country's sea services, kicks off with the Parade of Ships, which starts at 10 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m.

Here are the vessels you'll see today:
• Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Bataan (LHD 5), from Norfolk, Virginia
• USCGC Katherine Walker (WLM 552), from Bayonne, New Jersey
• Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Farragut (DDG 99), from Mayport, Florida
• Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Bainbridge (DDG 96), from Norfolk, Virginia
• USCGC Forward (WMEC 911), from Portsmouth, Virginia
• Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship USS Fort McHenry (LSD 43), from Mayport, Florida
• Iroquois-class destroyer HMCS Athabaskan (D 282), from Canadian Forces Base Halifax
• Kingston-class coastal defence vessel HMCS Kingston (MM 700), from Canadian Forces Base Halifax
• Kingston-class coastal defence vessel HMCS Moncton (MM 708), from Canadian Forces Base Halifax

Fleet Week New York organizers say, "The ships can be seen along the Hudson River from Battery Park to just south of the George Washington Bridge. The flagship, Bataan, is scheduled to render an 11-gun salute as the ship passes Fort Hamilton on Long Island, N.Y."

This is the 28th year Fleet Week has come to New York, and about 4,500 Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen are expected to participate this year. The public is welcome to enjoy numerous free activities, from ship tours to demonstrations (Military Day is Saturday, May 28, in Battery Park City), silent drill team performances and search-and-rescue demos.
