Over the weekend, East Hampton Village celebrated the 100th anniversary of its incorporation, albeit a year late due to the pandemic. The festivities included a parade, a black-tie gala, a carnival, a classic car show, and a community softball game. Here are some scenes from the long-anticipated weekend.

 

East Hampton Village Mayor Jerry Larsen reveled in the festivities on Saturday at Herrick Park.

A giant slide and a merry-go-round were set up in Herrick Park.

Face-painting is a must at any community celebration.

Steven Tekulsky, a musician who happens to be a sitting East Hampton Town Justice, fronted one of the bands that performed in the park.

The East Hampton High School marching band set the tone during the parade on Saturday morning.

Participants got creative with parade floats, like this rendering of the Hook Mill.

Dressed in white, members of the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons, Shelter Island, and North Fork paid homage to the suffragists who earned women the right to vote in 1920.

High-fives were abundant as the Bonackers and the Maidstone softball teams faced off on Sunday.

Hanna Rosario was one of the winners of the classic car show in Herrick Park on Sunday.
