The Working Waterfront at the Tobay Beach Boat Show

On September 28th and 29th, Long Island Traditions and the New York Marine Trades Association are hosting a ‘Working Waterfront’ festival at the 2013 Tobay Beach Boat Show. The festival will celebrate Long Island’s treasured maritime traditions through a wide range of events.

 Demonstrations by decoy carvers, trap builders, net menders, clam diggers, storytellers and maritime folk artists will educate festival goers on the crafts central to our maritime history and cultural traditions. Storytelling sessions featuring fishermen, baymen, duck hunters, and other tradition bearers will engage attendees of the festival. A clam shucking contest, homemade Manhattan clam chowder contest and boat tying contest are open to public participation for a variety of exciting prizes. For those interested in learning to fish, a free beginner’s fishing workshop for both kids and adults will be present at the festival.

Adult admission to the Tobay Beach Boat Show is $10, which includes admission to the ‘Working Waterfront’ festival, and will take place at the Tobay Beach Marina in Massapequa.
