Fire Island Invasion 2023


The Fire Island Invasion is a recreation and celebration of the very first Fire Island Invasion that took place in the Summer of 1976. On the afternoon of July 4 each year, drag queens from both Cherry Grove and the Pines gather at the Ice Palace Bar at the Cherry Grove Hotel in Cherry Grove. After parading through the streets of Cherry Grove, they board a chartered ferry boat and sail to the Pines Harbor, where they are greeted by thousands of cheering residents and visitors.
