It might be the shortest parade in the universe, but it was long on fun Saturday, as the 10th Am O’Gansett parade hit Main Street in the hamlet. Led by Grand Marshal Dell Cullum and his miniature fire truck escort, the procession traveled one block (and back) from the municipal parking lot to the Stephen Talkhouse. Last year’s Grand Marshal Joan Tulp was on hand for the festivities, as were the Friends of Erin, the Amagansett Fire Department, Mr. Amagansett, and East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc, a former Mr. A himself. Credit parade founders Patty Sales and Lee Satinsky for conceiving the amusing annual display.
