Weekend Events for Kids on Long Island, November 20-22: Celebrate the History of the Holiday with your Kids

This weekend is technically the last weekend we have before the Holidays are officially upon us. Next week at this time, you may be hitting your favorite super store or shopping mall scouting out the best deals (or maybe not). And yet, the more we parents get caught up in the pace and commercialism of the Holidays, so do our kids. So this weekend, grab the kids and check out some of the coolest ways to appreciate and celebrate the History of the Holidays, Long Island Style. 



Weekend Events for Kids on Long Island, November 14-15: Indoor Theater and Outdoor Fun

From one Holiday to the next, chances are your weekend is going to include some sort of Thanksgiving discussion. Less than two weeks away, this weekend might be a great time to visit one of Long Island's local poultry farms and get up close with a real live turkey, but if you're not quite ready to forge into Thanksgiving mode, there are plenty of other cool things happening out and about Long Island this weekend:

Now that Halloween is behind us, I can feel a subliminal pressure mounting about the coming Holiday Season. The toy commercials are ramping up, the Toys R Us big book of presents as I call it arrived last Sunday, and I even spotted some tinsel being strewn, but I'm not gonna tell you where. At any rate, in case you hadn't heard, there is one less weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, meaning once Thanksgiving hits (which is just a few short weeks away), we are pretty much going to be in turbo Holiday mode until January 1st. Take advantage of the calm before the storm this weekend, and check out some of the cool family events going on across the Island:


Family Friendly Dining on Long Island for Less

With all the hullabaloo about Halloween lately, you might have missed another great happening here on Long Island-It's Long Island Restaurant Week. And, aside from giving you an excuse to get out and sample the local flavors and specialties, the restaurants participating are also giving you a chance to save some money. Over 200 venues are taking part in the celebration, and all are offering a 24.95 prix fixe menu. It's your chance to enjoy high end dining at lower end prices.
