Before Aquapalooza there was the
"Boat Party" or the barge party or Barcelona Fest, depending on who you talked to. Started by a local Sag Harbor, NY (Sag Harbor on the East End of Long Island) guy almost ten years ago as just a raft up witha barge that had a band on it, its grown to be a festival that draws up to 400 boats. (thats what they counted last year) Its open to everyone, and any type of boat. Its free, and there is always a good local band or two. Here are some shots from this year. It was cloudy, not very great boat weather, but there were still a good amount of boats. The pics do not do the festival justice. Post up if you went there this year or in the past.
There are about 4 boats that are rafted up all the way on the left side of the pic, that I couldnt get it.
I think I've seen the 25 Bertram in the pic below on THT, but I could be wrong...
