Welcome to the 30th annual Oyster Festival The Oyster Festival, the East Coast’s largest waterfront festival, is now in its 30th year, offering a fun mixture of new activities and old favorites designed to entertain the entire family. This year the event is made possible in part by Verizon, our title sponsor. The Oyster Festival originated as a hometown parade honoring our favorite son, Theodore Roosevelt, before evolving into the largest outdoor festival on Long Island, under the auspices of the Oyster Bay Rotary. Every year, more than 200,000 visitors flock to the waterfront in downtown Oyster Bay on an Indian-summer weekend — drawn by live entertainment, tall ships and waterfront activities, top-notch artisans, pirate shows, midway rides, and the iconic oyster eating and shucking contests. And of course…the Food Court, where volunteer chefs and culinary pros work side by side, cooking and serving dozens of unique oyster, clam and other seafood delicacies along with traditional festival fare such as — zeppoles, onion rings, cheesesteaks, chicken fingers, sausage and pepper, heroes and more!

Tall Ships Drop Anchor at Oyster Bay Pier Each year thousands of people rush to the Oyster Festival in anticipation of the Tall Ships that will be present. This year, festival organizers are excited to welcome some impressive but distinctly different ships.

The Schooner Mystic The Schooner Mystic is our newly launched (2007) three-masted, gaff-rigged, square topsail schooner. She is home-ported in Mystic, Conn. from June through September. In the winter, her sailing waters are in the Bahamas. When she changes destination areas in the fall and spring, she sails briefly in the Chesapeake Bay on her way south or north. She carries 8,500 square feet of sail in her 14 sails, including square sails on the foremast, and gaff topsails on the after two masts. Mystic is a U.S. flagged vessel; she and her officers are certified for Open Ocean Routes, and she carries all U.S. Coast Guard required safety equipment for those routes. The main deck is comfortably appointed with a beautiful main salon/dining area and a lounge (both with wrap-around view), plus a ship’s store. Mystic has wide decks for sunbathing, folding lounge chairs for the ultimate in relaxation, as well as permanent deck-box seating, full-length on port and starboard. There is plenty of room for conversation, sea gazing, reading, and even fishing. Her private double cabins all have individual climate control, viewing porthole, vanity with sink, and storage drawers. All cabins (some with double berths and others with upper/lower berths) feature luxury mattresses and bedding. There are five shared heads (bathrooms) with sinks, and four separate shower rooms. Two extra showers are located on deck, to wash off sand and salt water. For information, visit www. mysticadventuresails.com. Cost: Free Location: West End Waterfront Pier

John J. Harvey Fireboat For the third year in a row, we are honored to welcome the John J. Harvey Fireboat back to Oyster Bay. On September 11, 2001, the boat’s owners asked FDNY officials for permission to assist in evacuations from Ground Zero. Meanwhile, due to many damaged water mains, fire crews were deprived of water. Officials radioed the Harvey to drop off her passengers as soon as possible and return to the disaster site to pump water, reactivating her official designation Marine 2. Alongside FDNY fireboats Firefighter and John D. McKean, she pumped water at the site for 80 hours, until water mains were restored. The John J. Harvey served the FDNY from her launch in 1931 to her retirement in 1994. At 130 feet and 268 net tons, she is among the most powerful fireboats ever in service. She has five 600 HP diesel engines, and has capacity to pump 18,000 gallons of water a minute. Her pumps are powerful — enough so that when she and the George Washington Bridge were both brand new, she shot water over the bridge’s roadway. The marine fires at which she assisted include: the Cunard Line pier fire in 1932, the burning of the Normandie in 1942, and the ammunition ship El Estero during World War II. She was named for marine fireman John J. Harvey, killed when the Thomas Willet

The Christeen

exploded during a fire. She retired as Marine 2. The John J. Harvey was retired by the New York City Fire Department in 1994 and is now owned by a small group who bought her at auction in 1999. She was placed on The National Register of Historic Places in June 2000. Her owners have been working since 1999 to raise awareness of the importance of historic vessels to the history of New York City and the United States — and they are succeeding! With their trips up the Hudson, they are promoting interest in the waterfront for towns in New York State. They offer public access to the harbor, training in new skills, and a chance to preserve an important part of history. Cost: Free Location: West End Waterfront Pier

The Christeen The Christeen, a 40-foot gaff rigged oyster sloop, is the oldest oyster sloop in America and a National Historic Landmark. She was originally built in 1883 for Captain William Smith in Glenwood Landing for the purpose of harvesting oysters in Oyster Bay and Cold Spring Harbor. Over her 125 years, the Christeen served not only as an oyster dredge but also as a cargo carrier and live-aboard between Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. After surviving 16 major hurricanes, numerous nor’easters, two sinkings and severe neglect, the Christeen was returned home to Oyster Bay in 1992. A dedicated group of volunteers worked tirelessly on her restoration, alongside a full-time shipwright and raising more than $300,000. The Christeen was completely restored and launched in 1999. Come aboard the Christeen for a sail around beautiful West Harbor and Oyster Bay. View these harbors from a different viewpoint as you cut through the water under sail and look towards the shore. See wildlife, landmarks, and learn the history of the home of a former President. As an added bonus, we have added a fun, educational activity for the family! With a marine educator, learn more about the marine life that call Oyster Bay home; a unique opportunity offered only through Waterfront Center’s Christeen. Sails begin promptly at 12, 2 and 4 p.m. Ages: 5 and older Cost: $25 per person

Tall Ships Drop Anchor at Oyster Bay Pier Anne, 1884 Oyster Sloop Anne is pronounced “Annie,” which was a standard pronunciation of that spelling in 1884 when she was built in Smithtown. It is our language that has changed in the last 126 years, not her name. She was built by local townspeople as repayment to the grocer for debts incurred during hard times. Originally Anne was a gaff rigged centerboard sloop with no engine. She was used to carry deck cargo. In 1895 she was modified with a steam engine and is, to our knowledge, the only vessel still in operation that was modernized by the addition of steam. A 20 hp gasoline engine replaced the steam engine in 1905. She has had at least five different power plants since then. A 6 cylinder 200 hp John Deere diesel now powers Anne. In 1922 the flat transom was replaced with the round fantail you see today to make her better suited for towing an oyster dredge. In 1955 Anne was lengthened 4 feet to lessen her draft. Stephen Jones, her present owner, chronicles her history in the book “Working Thin Waters.” Cost: Free Location: West End Waterfront Pier

The Ida May Project In 2009, a project to build a replica of the historic oyster dredge “Ida May” got underway. “It served us well for 75 years,” said Dave Relyea, co-owner and

spokesperson for the Frank M. Flower & Sons, Inc. shellfish company. “We decided then that it was time to retire the ship. It was worn out and Frank M. Flower donated it to the Waterfront Center for possible display to help educate the public about aqua-farming and the environment of the estuary. We never envisioned it going back into the water. We discussed it with Senator Marcellino when we retired the Ida May and he said why not have it go back into the water rather than have it as a static display. It was a great idea. It was logical that the Christeen Oyster Sloop Preservation Corporation be the group to go to, to get it underway.” The Ida May Project will construct from scratch an oyster vessel that follows as closely as possible the lines and construction of the original Ida May while meeting current U.S. Coast Guard standards. A survey was conducted with the hope that the original Ida May could be preserved in her entirety, but multiple shipwrights determined that key timbers were simply not salvageable. If existing timbers cannot be used, the boat cannot be considered a pure restoration. Further complicating the issue, lateral stability is a problem for modern day public certification. As a result, a detailed study of Ida May was undertaken. Her lines were recorded both for posterity and to guide a modified design. It is Senator Marcellino and the organization’s hope that, similar to the restoration of the Christeen, this will be the kind of community activity that draws volunteers, builds pride among its supporters, creates opportunities for learning new boat-building skills, and results in a vessel that can take more people out on the waters of Oyster Bay.

Amusements, thrill rides and game midway Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a festival without rides? Newton & Sons provides the sensational midway, as they have for many years. The attractions are fun and exciting! These attractions have provided safe fun for more than 40 years. A wide assortment of rides for children of all ages will be on hand, along with an array of fun sideshow games with great prizes, all sponsored by Wild Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olde Fashioned Soda. Not many people buy a ferris wheel upon learning a fourth child is on the way. But in 1949, Lewis Newton, already trying to make ends meet by supplying prizes and stuffed animals to church bazaars, took the chance when a Brooklyn priest suggested he â&#x20AC;&#x153;get some rides.â&#x20AC;? Newton invested his savings of $9,300 and his future was delivered in mounds of steel and moving parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell what I was looking at,â&#x20AC;? Newton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I drove over to Palisades Amusement Park in New Jersey and asked the guy who ran the wheel there if he could help me. He saved my life.â&#x20AC;? That ferris wheel in post-war Flatbush was, according to Newton, the ďŹ rst amusement ride to make the rounds of the Catholic parishes in Queens and Brooklyn. With his initial success, Newton expanded in 1953. He quit his day job installing insulation for Western Electric and

added four rides from a Levittown kiddie park that was forced to close because it was too near a cocktail lounge. During the winter, he stored the amusements in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;boonies,â&#x20AC;? on 20 acres at Elwood Road and Route 25A in Northport, which he leased for $10 a month. Now, with 26 rides in tow, Lewis J. Newton & Sons is the biggest carnival operator in Queens, and Nassau and Suffolk counties. Headquartered in East Northport a few miles away from its original storage site, it is one of an estimated 500 such traveling carnivals in North America, all family owned.
