The 2016 Maritime Festival kicked off with a Land and Sea Gala on the waterfront at the Greenport Yacht and Shipbuilding grounds in Greenport Friday night.

Hundreds of people enjoyed tastings from nearly two dozen local restaurants, North Fork wineries, spirit producers and Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. while listening to live music on a picture perfect evening. The event included raffles and a photo booth sponsored by northforker.

The festival continues on Saturday and Sunday. [Click here for the Greenport Maritime Festival 2016 schedule]
