Join Hallockville and Long Island Traditions on April 7th (1-3PM), in welcoming four native Long Island decoy carvers: George Rigby Jr., Scott Lechmanski, Captain Jack Combs, and Don Michne. Duck Decoys are considered a traditional woodworking craft, dating back thousands of years, and are recognized as important pieces of Maritime Folk Art heritage locally and nationally. Come spend the afternoon enjoying, viewing and learning about one of our island’s maritime traditions, decoy carving.
