This week Long Island comes to life with a visit from muddy puddle queen Peppa Pig and during an animated reading of Pete the Cat's The Wheels on the Bus. Older children will be amazed when they get a glimpse of the heavens during a Hofstra-sponsored astronomy event at Sagamore Hill. And families can dine and unwind at family festivals in Bellmore and Garden City.
What an awesome week to be a Long Islander!
