Blazing boats on Halloween - at it again

Halloween Boat Burning - LI Maritime Museum - West Sayville NY
The museum's annual Halloween Boat Burning is one of New York's most unique family events! Each year, someone donates a large, wooden boat that is simply beyond repair and we set it ablaze for Long Island's largest bon fire!

Each year at this event, we also raffle off a new wooden boat, lovingly hand-crafted by our boat shop volunteers to a lucky winner!

Halloween costumes encouraged.

Interesting video from last year's inferno - have to skip ahead to the three minute mark in the video to see them enkindle the sacrificial yacht.
