2015 Pony Swim time has been announced:  between 10:00am and 12:00noon on the high slack tide.  Keep in mind that ANYTHING could change because of an emergency or a weather event but as it stands right now that is our official time.  Remember, if you are planning on going down to Pony Swim Lane to watch the big event please bring sunscreen, water, bug spray and your patience. Its going to be a long morning so be prepared.  Also, this isn't a black tie affair so don't wear anything that you are afraid of getting dirty.  You will walk in marsh and mud and get wet.  For more info, come down to the carnival grounds and stop by the information stand and the crew in there will do their best to answer all of your questions!!
