Howl at the Moon
An Island tradition since January 2011, 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 of Chef Chip's famous 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. The event is free and open to all.
After the Howl, head up to Mojo's for their "moonrise to Midnight" bash - a moonlit post-Howl extravaganza on the porch.
