An Old-Fashioned Holiday Weekend


Locals looking for an old-fashioned holiday activity away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded Rockaway beaches and crowded fireworks displays flocked to Riis Park over the holiday weekend for its annual beach campfire program. As with traditional campfires, this one featured marshmallow roasting, folk songs and some good fun. All that was missing, some say, were the ghost stories. Photo by Vivian Rattay Carter.
