The Village of East Hampton will celebrate 100 years with a fair, parade, and tours of historic homes and places on September 26, 2020. Village streets will be closed according to the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce between 10 am and 4 pm. A 1920s theme will feature floats with people dressed in period costumes. Restaurants will embrace a speakeasy theme for the day. The school curriculum will take on the events of the 1920s and a time capsule will be buried.
It was on September 25, 1920 that village residents voted to break away from the Town of East Hampton. Plans for the day long event are being coordinated by the Ladies Village Improvement Society, the school district, and the Garden Club of East Hampton among others. Many village restaurants have already agreed to feature menu items for $19.20.
Anyone interested in volunteering for the events should contact Steven Ringel of the Chamber of Commerce: firstname.lastname@example.org
