An archaeology festival sponsored by the Montauk Historical Society will be held on the grounds of the Second House Museum on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The festival, now in its second year, is held to raise awareness of a proposed Montauk Indian Museum to be established in a cottage owned by the Town of East Hampton on the north side of the Second House property. A future addition to the building is planned.
With more than 8,000 people attending the Montauk Seafood Festival on Saturday and Sunday at the Montauk Marine Basin, you could say it was a hit. Saturday, the busier of the two days, saw up to 5,000 people waiting on long lines to buy food coupons used for seafood tastings under a tent, and cars were parked all over West Lake Drive, in nearby restaurant parking lots, and even down nearby side streets.
