CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. – While the annual Chincoteague Pony Penning and Carnival was canceled this year due to COVID-19, organizers are still making it possible for people to join in on the fun.

At 4 p.m. Wednesday, the Saltwater Cowboys led the ponies from Assateague Island to Chincoteague Island and the whole event was live streamed.

An online auction for the ponies is now taking place.
