Swing and sway at the Jones Beach theater this weekend as Kidz Bop Live lights up the stage. Go early to get wet and wild at the park's new splash pad. Stroll around Sayville during its annual Summerfest or get into retro mode at the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo.

Head outdoors to a boardwalkbeach, pools, sprinkler parks, or perhaps to cool off at a water park
