Mancuso Airshow follows WH Parade

With its large Irish population, the East End plays host to many green events, including two great parades book ending the Hamptons. On the far end of the spectrum is Montauk's 47th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday, March 22.
On the other end of the calendar and the Hamptons is the 42nd annual Westhampton Beach parade, scheduled for Saturday, March 14. The wildly popular event kicks off at 8 a.m. with a traditional Irish breakfast, Kegs and Eggs!, at the pub, Finn McCool's.
Following is the parade, which some call the best event of the year (don't say that in Montauk). This year, the float/bagpipe band/classic car-packed march might be upstaged by an event immediately following: Mike Mancuso's Aerobatic Stunt Show at Rogers Beach, featuring one of the top aerobatic stunt pilots in the country.
The airshow is sponsored by Finn McCool's, which is in partnership with Mancuso Airshows to raise money for Westhampton Beach based CAARE, the Council for Autistic Awareness and Research. In addition to 50/50 raffles benefiting CAARE at all of Finn McCool events, they are raffling off the ultimate prize for anyone who has ever fantasized about being a stunt pilot: a ride in the airshow plane. For a mere $5 per raffle ticket, you may win the opportunity to go up in the Extra 300L, a two seat, high performance aerobatic airplane built in Germany that has a roll rate of over 400 degrees per second and is capable of speeds in excess of 250 miles per hour, inverted.
