2018 USS Sioux City Commissioning
In late spring or early summer, over 6,000 people will visit the City of Annapolis for the commissioning of America's 11th Littoral Combat Ship: the USS Sioux City. The commissioning, to be held at the United States Naval Academy, will be the culminating event during a week of festivities honoring the USS Sioux City and her crew. Businesses are encouraged to reach out to the presenters to help get the word out and to become involved in with collaborative ways to promote the city's unique experience.
