Fri, 05/27/2022 - 17:40

Nothing says "summer's here" like an action-packed Memorial Day weekend in Montauk. 

The Ladies Guild of the Montauk Community Church will have the first of the church's summer rummage sales on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. The sales, which include jewelry, clothing, household items, toys and books, linens, and more, will continue weekly through Labor Day.

The Montauk Lighthouse Museum and gift shop will have extended hours for the holiday weekend, staying open from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and until 5:30 p.m. on Monday. Admission is $13 for adults, $8 for senior citizens, and $5 for children 12 and under. Children under 41 inches tall will be admitted free, but will not be allowed to climb or be carried up the tower. No backpacks or large bags will be allowed on Lighthouse property. 

Hither Hills State Park is hosting a few events this holiday weekend. On Saturday at 1 p.m. there will be gyotaku fish printing for children. During a trash and beach cleanup on Sunday at 1, all participants will receive a reusable tote. Monday the park will offer a program in its pollinator garden on how to protect our pollinators, along with a taste of some honey. The meeting place is at the visitors center near the campground. Registration is by searching "Hither Hills Montauk" at

Surfers and paddlers looking for a little extra protection in the water this summer may want to head over to the St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church for the 12th annual Blessing of the Boards, happening in front of the church after the 5 p.m. Mass on Saturday and the 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. Sunday Masses.
