You’ve heard of the June swoon, right? It’s originally a baseball term, defining a team that plays well in April and May only to fall apart once the calendar stretches past Memorial Day.
Kids might swoon in June, too, as the anticipation of summer vacation usurps whatever lessons still remain on the school calendar. Well, we at Mommy Poppins don't want to contribute to that, but we must say there is plenty about June that just tickles us with excitement.
On Long Island alone, there is a host of things to do in the four weeks before school lets out, including street fairs and festivals, concerts, Father’s Day celebrations, and more. The highlight might be the Mattituck Strawberry Festival, one of the largest North Fork gatherings of the year, but from Nassau County to Suffolk and out to the East End there’s plenty to keep your kids engaged until the school year concludes.
So away we go. Remember, our Long Island Events Calendar offers exciting family options as they develop throughout the month. You might also want to visit our Themes Parks and Water Parks Guide as the weather (hopefully) gets warmer.
And did we mention the Besties are here? The Bestie Awards is our reader voting contest celebrating small local businesses that make parenting on Long Island so wonderful. Help us choose our finalists by shouting out your favorite places to make, do, eat, learn and play. Nominate your Besties now.
