A laid back fishing village most of the year, Chincoteague VA becomes downright frenetic during the Pony Penning Festival held annually at the end of July. About 50,000 eager tourists crowd the tiny island to watch wild ponies swim from Assateague island to Chincoteague. The world-famous saltwater Cowboys parade the unruly ponies down main street (as in the photo), and sell the new crop of foals at auction. The first colt or filly across the channel is raffled off to the lucky ticket holder.
