The Bayport-Blue Point Chamber of Commerce hosted its 15th biennial Expo Wednesday evening in Bayport.

As usual, the Expo drew hundreds of people and over 50 local vendors, organizations, law enforcement groups and elected leaders to Bayport Flower Houses.

Eric’s Adventures also showed up with a menagerie of exotic animals.

There was a dunk tank where people got the chance to dunk local celebrities, such as Bayport-Blue Point superintendent Vincent Butera (pictured below).

All raffle proceeds go toward the Chamber Outreach Fund that supports local charities like the BBP Foundation, SEED, BBP high school scholarships, and community improvement projects.
