For the next 4 days, the Ocean Beach Historical Society will be transformed into a haven for Monarch and Eastern Black Swallowtail butterflies. Fire Island's resident Butterfly Lady, Margaret Hofbeck, will be visiting with us, and she's bringing along these beautiful creatures of her garden. Complete with photography from local artists and educational videos, it's an exciting and colorful show for all ages. OBHS's "Birth of the Beautiful Butterflies" will be open 10am-2pm Monday through Thursday.

Sorry for the condition. Hope you can read it. This was my Grandma. Some of you old-timers might remember her.
The First "Official" Ocean Beach Street - 1983 This video is from an episode of Ocean Beach Magazine that was broadcast on a local Public Access channel in 1983. I recently restored the episode to commemorate the 40th Annual Ocean Beach Street Fair. Enjoy!
