Oysters for Breakfast

We serenaded the early lunch crowd today on the main stage at the 27th Annual Oyster Festival in Oyster Bay, NY. It was windy and cool down on the water front, but downright pleasant compared to the cold, wet, windy conditions last year. I never realized how big this festival was or is. The crowds number upwards of 100,000 each day—nearly a quarter million over the weekend! The music is great (excellent sound—kudos to entertainment director Tim Wright) and lots of delicious food, crafts, and activities going on all day. Try and make it down tomorrow (Sunday, October 17) looks like it's gonna be a great fall day! The Homegrown String Band will be opening the festival with an 11am set, so I guess it'll be oysters for breakfast tomorrow!

  1. Not for me. I'm not a fan of oysters, but I'll eat clams, even raw.
