They call them the dog days of August, when it might seem impossible to enjoy yourself in the hot and sticky outdoors of a Long Island summer.
Nonsense, we say. In fact, we here at Mommy Poppins think there’s plenty to bark about in the final full month of summer.
This month, we’re highlighting street fairs and summer festivals, theater, cultural celebrations, and more. Discover nature at Garvies Point in Glen Cove, cast a line in Point Lookout, or perhaps return to a time when games were played minus the iPad.
Whatever you choose, cherish this month, because kids know what’s coming in September—back to school. This just might be your final chance to take advantage of our 50 FREE things to do with LI kids this summer.
In the meantime, check out our guide to FREE summer outdoor movies and concerts. And remember, our Long Island Events Calendar offers exciting family options as they develop throughout the month.
