DescriptionNamed for Seattle real estate entrepreneur William Bremer, Bremerton is home to Naval Base Kitsap - Bremerton, the northern outpost of the Pacific Fleet. The base also is responsible for the city's largest industry, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.
Harborside Fountain Park, just south of the ferry terminal on First Street, overlooks the waterfront. It features five copper-plated fountains shaped like submarine sails. North of the ferry terminal, Bremerton Boardwalk offers a promenade along the shoreline, which is indented with bays and inlets.
The highlight of the Armed Forces Festival, held in mid-May, is a parade through downtown Bremerton that salutes past and present veterans. Other events include the Pepsi Armed Forces Festival Golf Tournament, a military culinary arts competition and a pancake breakfast.
