Still Fresh After 23 Years
After 23 years, the Oyster Festival is still fresh as the oysters in the bay. Members of Oyster Bay's non-profit groups are prepared to serve up the great foods that are the hallmark of the day. The weather looks like the perfect brisk Indian summer weekend. Mix in pirates and fresh oysters from the bay, historic tall ships, pirates looking for buried treasure, live bands, artisans from around the country all coming together for area non-profits and you have a weekend to remember.

The Oyster Bay Chamber of Commerce thanked Cruise Night presenters Austin Azzaretto and Bob Basta with plaques and dinner certificates for all their time and work on the very successful Tuesday evening Cruise Night car shows. "We have had a fantastic year with the Cruise Nights--225 vehicles exhibited one evening. And very well-attended by a walk-through public. With all the positive response in 2006, we expect 2007 to be even better!" said Paige Dawson, chamber promoter.
