The sun will come out, tomorrow…
Remember that song from Annie?
Although our sun isn’t scheduled to come out until Friday, it’s supposed to stick around for the whole weekend, including Monday, for those of you who have an extra day off for the Columbus Day holiday!
Saturday and Sunday, the Mill Neck Harvest Festival will take place at Mill Neck Manor on the North Shore of Nassau County. The largest fundraiser of the year, the festival raises funds to benefit the Mill Neck Family of Organizations, which includes the Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf, Mill Neck Manor Early Childhood Center and Mill Neck Services for Deaf Adults. This is a family tradition for so many Long Island families – make it one for your family!
The Long Island Fall Festival starts Friday in Heckscher Park in Huntington. Taking place on 25 acres of the park, this is the largest festival in the Northeast United States. You’ll find local businesses, restaurants and organizations with tables all around the festival path, along with many craft vendors. Food courts and a beer and wine tent will satisfy your hunger and thirst. There will also be entertainment stages and a world class carnival set up. Admission is free but you’ll want to get there early to ensure that you get a parking spot relatively close to the fair.
Out east, the Riverhead Country Fair is scheduled for Saturday from 10am to 5pm. With over 400 vendors, there’s something for everyone, including children’s activites, rides, food and entertainment.
Also on Saturday, Eisenhower Park in East Meadow will be hosting the Walk for Food Allergy to help find a cure for food allergies. Register a team and come down and walk.
Whatever you do this weekend, be sure to enjoy the fall weather – it may not last for too long!
