Howl at the Moon Sponsored by Wendy Wilmont
An Island tradition for several years running, the Maritime Market hosts the largest beach party each month when the full moon rises out of the Atlantic Ocean. The "Howl" party (as it's called by the locals) happens on East Beach Access 39, and attendees BYOB and bring appetizers to share. The Market brings huge pots of soup and some appetizers to share as well.
When the Moon rises, the entire throng of attendees breaks into a collective "howl!" A bonfire is usually blazing and the event draws hundreds. Free and open to all.
