It's all perfectly natural here!
To become totally immersed in the oddest of silly visual spectacles, you should head for the Downtown Waterfront Park around 11pm.
Prizes will be awarded in various categories.
Bring your camera to capture the spectacle, dress warm, wear a hat and gloves for sure, and comfortable shoes so you can shimmy and dance to the beat, but most importantly; bring family and friends with you to enjoy the grand fun that is all Chincoteague Island!
