Our power source.  I added a circuit breaker to the City park's panel.  No generator needed for this event.   Notice GFCIs for safety.

Side view of the power center. At the top of the mast you can see a 2.4 GHz yagi.  We had high speed connectivity to the Internet for messages, APRS, and weather radar.  A local Wireless Internet company donated the bandwidth for the day.

The Coast Guard vessel arrives at the dock.

The event leader, David, KE4TIN.   He operated his radio from a personal watercraft.

The mister set up.  Not ham radio, but it seems to be appreciated by the people who participate in an event on a hot day.  You'll see these at some of the events we participate in when the crowds need some cooling.
