Several towns on Marthas Vineyard in Massachusetts will be holding events to celebrate Steven Spielbergs shark-infested movie, which was filmed on the island.
In particular, one event called Shark in the Pond will recreate the movie scene where a shark makes its way into the beach waters and swimmers flea in terror.
Except this time, event organizers say the water will be filled with rubber sharks, and when someone screams Shark! into a mega-phone, children will scramble to collect as many of the rubber sharks as possible, and the one who collects the most wins a prize.
Events start June 3 with a ribbon cutting, where several of the actors will attend, although Spielberg wont be there. He sent a video-taped message thanking fans.
The Jaws 30th anniversary DVD will come out June 14.
