Pony Swim Day
Wednesday July 29, 2015
At "slack tide", sometime between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m., the Chincoteague Ponies will swim across the Assateague Channel just south of Memorial Park (7427 Memorial Park Dr, Chincoteague Island, VA 23336) on the east side of Chincoteague Island. There is no charge by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company for parking or seeing the ponies swim. The ONLY parking at Memorial Park, however, is designated for handicap use. All other folks coming in just for the day are encouraged to go to Chincoteague Combined School (4586 Main St. Chincoteague Island, VA 23336) and catch the free shuttle. There is also a handicap accessible bus for your convenience (click here for shuttle information). Those staying on the island may catch a shuttle bus near their lodging.
Note: Pets are not permitted in Memorial Park or the Carnival Grounds.
