Fleet Week is officially underway, with the 31st annual celebration kicking off in New York City with a Parade of Ships along the Hudson River, right in time for Memorial Day Weekend. Nearly 2,600 sailors, coast guardsmen, and marines are expected to attend the weeklong celebrations.

There will be multiple events throughout the week: ship tours at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, concerts, and displays like a Navy dive tank in Times Square. The celebrations will wrap up on Tuesday, May 28, with ships departing from New York Harbor.

Because events are often concentrated around the Intrepid, the following streets on Manhattan’s west side will be closed starting Wednesday, May 22, until Tuesday, May 28:
