When they call the Long Island Fall Festival the 'largest of its kind in the Northeast' - they are definitely not joking around!
From 10/5/18 through 10/8/18, this year's Long Island Fall Festival had Heckscher Park in Huntington, NY buzzing with autumnal activity including: four stages of entertainment, a world-class carnival, hundreds of arts and craft vendors, international food courts, beer and wine tent, a farmer’s market, and numerous activities designed especially for young children.
Presented by the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Huntington, this event attracted a HUGE turnout - tens of thousands of families from all over the New York tri-state area, kids, teens, adults, seniors...and even pets! The large crowds present really hit home the fact that the Long Island Fall Festival is truly the premiere October event for family fun in this area of the country!
The number (and variety) of vendors was almost mind-boggling! From art, to jewelry, to clothing, to food, to home services to cars, and beyond - there was truly something to be brought home (or at least considered) by everyone who visited the festival.
And the weather cooperated, also offering a variety of experiences during the multi-day festival - from a continuation of summer, all the way through to cozy sweater-weather!
This community event absolutely highlighted the best that Huntington has to offer – from its civic-minded businesses, cultural institutions and service organizations, to its restaurants, pubs and retailers.
Couldn't make it to the festival? Not to worry - we have a few photos from the event, and we're happy to share them with you right here!
