Weekend Fun: Fall Festivals, Colonial Celebration, Fireworks

With school again in full swing, it's time to pack all that family fun into the weekend. We've rounded up some family fall festivals as they kick off across Long Island.

Elsewhere this weekend, step back to Colonial times as Raynham Hall in Oyster Bay is filled with costumed adult and child re-enactors who bring the 18th century to life. Celebrate the autumn season with outdoor activities for children of all ages at Sands Point Preserve. These are just some of the best kid-friendly events and activities taking place across Long Island this weekend.

Visit our Fall Family Fun Guide and our September GoList for the best in seasonal entertainment, including day trip ideas, fall festivals and plenty of FREE events and activities. As always, our Event Calendar is loaded with fun, daily happenings for Long Island kids.
