Long Island boat parade canceled

Organizers canceled the 2014 Huntington (N.Y.) Lighthouse Boat Parade.

Tugboats, barges and ancillary vessels are positioning themselves into Huntington Harbor on Long Island Sound to begin a long-awaited dredging project, and additional vessels will soon be arriving to start the rebuilding of the bulkheads in Halesite, N.Y., the Huntington Lighthouse Preservation Society said.

Those vessels will impede the channel at the south end of the harbor, making it impossible to navigate safely through the parade route. There is no safe alternate route.
