Northport Celebrates Maritime Heritage

Northport celebrated its maritime heritage Saturday, with a blessing of the fleet, demonstrations of knot-tying and rescue skills, and a parade of boats in the harbor.

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary band performed several pieces of music, including the anthems of the military services.

The parade of boats, which passed under review by elected officials, Coast Guard officers and members of the public who filledĀ  the dock, included a dog standing watch on a vessel as it went by.
