Every year New London’s Sailfest celebration in July culminates with a spectacular fireworks display. Since 2005, the Fishers Island Community Center has organized a ferry ride to enjoy the fireworks extravaganza on the Thames River. This event’s proceeds benefit the Community Center and the various program offerings.
Guests board the Race Point ferry at Fishers Island’s Silver Eel Cove with beach chairs and picnic dinners in hand. They fill the boat deck and enjoy each other’s company as they ride to the pier in New London. Island favorite, Rollin the DJ, plays requested tunes across the sound and pipes in the Sailfest broadcast. After the spectacular fireworks show, the passengers enjoy a cruise home while dancing to the rockin’ tunes under the night sky.
2017 tickets are now available at the Community Center, or by emailing Sarah!
The Race Point departs the Fishers Island dock at 7 pm on Saturday, July 8th, returning around 11 pm. Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for children; anyone 16 or under must be accompanied by an adult. BYOB (and everything else)!
