Am O’Gansett Parade Approaches

Mark your calendar! The 11th annual Am O’Gansett parade, a unique take on St. Patrick’s Day festivities, is set for March 9. The procession will march on the hamlet’s Main Street at noon.

The Amagansett Chamber of Commerce announced on Tuesday that Hugh King and Loretta Orion will be co-grand marshals of this year’s parade. “It’s such a nice honor, since I am from Amagansett,” said Mr. King, East Hampton’s town crier and director of the Home, Sweet Home Museum. “I was also grand marshal for the Christmas parade — I’m getting all my grand marshals in before I die. It’s good they honor people while they’re here instead of after they’re gone.”
