Things To Do on Long Island This Weekend and Beyond: Oktoberfest, Fall Festivals, and More

Do you feel that chill in the air? Fall has settled in, and our Event Calendar is full of family outings just perfect for boots and sweaters and warm mugs of cider.  Whether you decide to embark on a colorful nature walk, be wowed by The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze, partake in some Oktoberfest shenanigans, or turn your attention to all of the kid-friendly Halloween happenings, it's bound to be a great weekend.

Halloween drive-in movies are popping up all over Long Island. Farms are bursting with apples ripe for the picking, and there's still plenty of time to find the perfect pumpkin. Get all the details (and more!) in our Fall Fun Guide.

As with all aspects of our new normal, before heading out, be sure to check with venues about their reservation and social distancing policies.
