The first Tivoli Day included a bicycle race around Circuit Avenue, and Ocean Park and a block dance. In 1978, the Oak Bluffs Business Association became involved. Bill and Margaret Stafursky promoted the first 50-mile around the Island bike race. It was an exciting event ending at Ocean Park. Later festivities included a blessing of the fleet, a local bike race for adults and children, a band concert and croquet games.
