Classics Day Gives Free Admission to Attractions in Oyster Bay, Sunday, May 15, noon to 4pm
Classic Boats, Cars, Trains, and Cycles Too
A new exciting event "Classics Day in Oyster Bay " on Sunday, May 15, 2011, will take place at various locations in the hamlet from noon to 4pm. There will be a walking map with points of interest throughout the hamlet for the event.
Classics Day in Oyster Bay combines classic boats, classic trains, classic cars, and Billy Joel's classic motorcycles. It will be a nice day for people to walk around the town to relax; the kids can climb onboard a train; they can come to the water, see the boats and relax and have a drink. There will be no charge at any of the venues, and a great day to enjoy historic Oyster Bay.
Visitors will start at Sagamore Yacht Club where various classic boats will be on display, courtesy of Oakcliff Sailing Center and The Waterfront Center of Oyster Bay. Sagamore Yacht Club's decks provide breath-taking views of Oyster Bay Harbor.
From there, it is a short walk to the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum train yard, where guests may climb aboard restored cabooses and view several other types of train equipment.
Just around the corner is Oakcliff Sailing Center dedicated to training sailors, boat workers, owners and teams in order to raise the level of sailors and sailing in the United States.
Next stop, after walking through the downtown area of Oyster Bay, is Billy Joel's 20th Century Cycles. On display are a collection of some 60 bikes lined up in neat rows, each a story on its own, where the important icons of their day are well represented with names like Ducati, Yamaha, Honda, BMW, Royal Enfield, BSA, Triumph, Harley Davidson, Moto Guzzi and others.
Just across the street is the home of the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum, and then through Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park back to Sagamore Yacht Club. The Sagamore Yacht Club will have steel drum entertainment providing live music the day of the event!
Participating restaurants will be offering Classics Day discounts throughout the day for those wishing to have lunch or dinner.
