The Hamptons' Oldest Established Town Celebrates 350th Anniversary With A Bang

by KENDRA SEAY · July 15, 2009

Fourth of July weekend is long behind us, yet we're still feeling a bit unsatisfied as we somehow managed to miss out on every single fireworks celebration. That's right, the firework industries busiest weekend and we didn't see one sparkler, roman candle, bottle rocket, or any sort of pyrotonic display. Luckily, we just received word of another chance to catch more sparkling flares and fountains

Quogue's 350th Anniversary Celebration is this weekend, complete with Friday night Grucci Fireworks, a Saturday afternoon parade, and a full 18th century re-enactment of the oldest established Hamptons town. Go HERE for more info and full weekend schedule below...
