Huntington Lighthouse Labor Day Music Festival

On Saturday Sept. 5th, 2009, the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society held its annual Music Fest.With all manner of boats creating a flotilla around the historic lighthouse, bands played all day from their perch on top of the tower. That morning we hopped down a ramp to a private dock in Centerport and boarded a friend's trawler.We pulled out of Centerport harbor,passing by the houses on the waterfront.We headed out to Huntington Harbor and the lighthouse.Hundreds of boats, and thousands of people crowded the waters around the lighthouse,lashing their craft together in rows numbering up to fifteen boats.Fishing boats, kayaks, sailboats, kids in inflatables, and fast power boats all mingled on the sound to hear the music.We had beautiful food, supplied by one of the passengers, a former caterer, how lucky for us.Captain Billy shot off a brass cannon without warning!Pirates were in the area, (making collections for the lighthouse fund raiser.)We thought about the day and other sailing adventurers from our past.It was Labor Day on Long Island, and everybody was there having a great time.As the day and the music ended, we left the Huntington Lighthouse, knowing that there will be other concerts in the future and other reasons for visiting the Huntington Lighthouse.
