Weekday Picks for LI Kids: Making Silly Scarecrows

Things to Do With Kids This Week on Long Island

Another exciting autumnal week is upon us here on Long Island and that means plenty of scary rides and kooky crafts

Also, don't wait too long to go apple picking. Last year I ended up on a long line of cars in late October, only to be turned away because the apples were all gone. With so many seasonal fun things happening across LI in fall, start planning your leaf-peeping itinerary today.
