Oyster Fest Preview for Education
The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce is extending the stay of the Sloop Providence prior to the 17th Annual Oyster Festival to enable students from local schools the opportunity to participate in a historic marine education program. The Providence is a 110' replica of a Revolutionary War sloop built in 1976 to honor John Paul Jones in his fight for American independence. Her mission today is to educate young and old about the history of our country, the ecology of our waters and the technology of yesterday and today.

Townies Win Bluefish Tournament
There have been years, when the winners of Annual Town of Oyster Bay Bluefish Tournament are announced, that we have had to be "good sports." People from outside of Oyster Bay have come in and hooked "the big ones." Not so this time, 11 of the first 15 winners were from the Town of Oyster Bay. The fish weighed more than in past years. The biggest bluefish, weighing in at 16.44, was caught by Brad Kahler, right near Cooper's Bluff, in Oyster Bay Harbor!
