The cutter Tern will be moored at McCovey Cove Ferry Piers, just outside AT&T Park in O’Doul Plaza, and the boat’s crew will be on-hand to meet the public.

The vessel will be open for tours from 4 to 6 p.m., before the Giants game against the Milwaukee Brewers, which starts at 7:15 p.m.

Representatives from local and state law enforcement and transportation agencies will also be at the safety festival with information booths and interactive displays at the park’s O’Doul gate, team officials said.
