From Mother's Day to Memorial Day, we'll be finding fun things to do all month long—May the 4th be with you!

May is here, and it's shaping up to be a stellar month! We're excited to welcome back anticipated annual events like the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach, the Fleece and Fiber Fair at Hallockville Farm Museum, and the reopening of Long Island's largest water park, Splish Splash.

We've got tons more fun things to do all across the region, including must-visit parks and playgrounds, and come Memorial Day weekend, fun in the sand and surf at our favorite Long Island beaches for families.

We’re adding more events to our Family Activity Calendar every day, so don’t forget to check it frequently.
