Cancelled – Burning of the Winter Socks and Soup Mug-In

March 19 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This pungent event will take place to celebrate the beginning of Spring. This event had its beginnings in Eastport, MD in the mid-1970’s when Bob Turner, a boatyard worker, decided to burn his socks and have a beer in tribute to the coming of warmer weather. Legend has it that back when baths were scarce, the boatyard workers wore the same socks all winter and burned them on the solstice.

Join us in our celebration by bringing your old winter socks to burn and set your “piggies” free!

Bring a mug to have some soup (provided by WVSCA folks). Let the tradition continue at West View Shores!
