Sag Harbor has been nominated by Costal Living magazine as one of America’s Happiest Seaside towns and will compete against nine other communities for the 2013 title.
The announcement led to a flurry of activity on Facebook, residents from across the East End encouraging others to support Sag Harbor over places like Beaufort, South Carolina, Harwich Port, Massachusetts, Kennebunkport, Maine, La Jolla, California and Sanibel Island, Florida, among others.
People can vote online, at coastalliving.com, through February 28 and are allowed to vote hourly on the contest.
So far, Sag Harbor and Beaufort, South Carolina have commanding leads over the other nominees, with Beaufort currently in first place.
