    Pavilion: Dancing the Summer Nights Away

    by von.otter Written Nov 14, 2010

    The Pavilion, Fire Island Pines
    4 more images

    Although the Pavilion's hay day is long gone it is still the only nigh club in The Pines.

    In the 1980s and throughout 1990s and into the early years of the new Millennium the boys of The Pines would meet up every Saturday night (it was really early Sunday morning, 1 or 2 am) to dance until dawn to the familiar disco music that made the place famous.

    Tastes in entertainment change; and so it is with the Pavilion.

    The late night crowd has shifted to an earlier hour; the dance floor is smaller now because the crowd is smaller. Dancing has given way to cocktail hour and lounge music.

    Dress Code: Jeans, shorts, NO SHIRT!

    Pines Party 2010: Beach Party

    Pines Party 2010
    4 more images

    Since 1999, in late July, the Fire Island Pines community has held a big party on the beach. It is always held at night.

    The party always has a theme. Past themes have included the Arabian Nights, Super Heroes, the Wild West, Ancient Rome and vintage TV shows. The photos here are from the 2010 party, with Poseidon, God of the Seas as its theme.

    This is a charity affair. The beneficiary is the Pines community itself and the Stonewall Community Foundation, an umbrella organization benefiting several gay charities. The Pines has refurbished its harbor with funds donated through the ticket sales of the Pines Party.

    The ticket price is steep, ranging from $100 to $150; drinks are included with that price however. Some party goers get a discount by volunteering to help set up the space, serve as bartender during the party, or help break down the following day. The volunteer time involved is usually four to five hours.

    The heart of the party is the dance floor, right there on the beach, with a live DJ and often a live performance. There are even casino gaming tables set up.

    Dress Code: Come as you are or dress according to the theme.

    Pines Party 2007: Dancing on the Beach

    The Pines Party 2007, Fire Island Pines
    4 more images

    Every summer season since 1999, in late July, the Fire Island Pines community comes together to give a big party on the beach. The party is always held at night.

    It always has a theme. Past themes have included the Arabian Nights, Super Heroes, the Wild West, Ancient Rome and vintage TV shows. The photo examples here are from the 2007 party; the Mardi Gras/New Orleans theme brought out many masked revelers (see photos #2, #3 & #4), and some great humor when a group showed up as their own version of FEMA (see photo #5) responding to the Katrina Hurricane disaster.

    This is a charity affair. The beneficiary is the Pines community itself and the Stonewall Community Foundation, an umbrella organization benefiting several gay charities. The Pines has refurbished its harbor with funds donated through the ticket sales of the Pines Party.

    Because the Pines Party is held out of doors, on the beach, it runs the risk of being rained out. The 2007 Party was not rained out, but it was quite misty and that accounts for the spottiness of some of the photos.

    The ticket price is steep, ranging from $100 to $150; drinks are included with that price however. Some party goers get a discount by volunteering to help set up the space, serve as bartender during the party, or help break down the following day. The volunteer time involved is usually four to five hours.

    The heart of the party is the dance floor, right there on the beach, with a live DJ and often a live performance. There are even casino gaming tables set up within the party area.

    4 more images

    A long-standing tradition on the Fourth of July is the annual Dance on the Bay.

    It is produced by the Fund in the Sun and it is a fund-raiser that benefits the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center in New York City.

    This dance is traditionally held at a spectacular home overlooking the Great South Bay where a dance floor is constructed to extend onto the Bay.

    This dance party starts in the late afternoon and continues into the night. After 9pm a fireworks display is launched for everyone’s enjoyment.

    Dress Code: A great body in beach attire :-)

    Thursday night in The Pines would not be Thursday night without Bingo! The twist here is the campy atmosphere surrounding the night’s gaming.
