Long Island Festival Planning Underway

19th annual Huntington event set for Oct.5-8.

Planning is underway for the 19th annual Long Island Fall Festival, set for Oct.5-8 at Heckscher Park.

Sponsored by the Town of Huntington and the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce, the festival will offer live music, food, carnival attractions, scores of vendors, a farmers' market and activities for young children. Festival organizers are seeking volunteers and have posted vendor contracts online.

“The Long Island Fall Festival has something for everyone and highlights the best Huntington has to offer – from its civic-minded businesses, cultural institutions and service organizations, to its restaurants, local businesses and retailers,” said Larry Kushnick, festival chairman. “We are really looking forward to this year’s festivities and the celebration of the festival’s 19th year. We have added some unique, exciting events and attractions that are sure to entertain everyone. This is one event you won't want to miss.”

Admission is free, with a $1 charge for roundtrip shuttle ticket from the Huntington Long Island Rail Road station to the park. The shuttle adds a stop in Huntington village this year to allow people to shop Main Street and its environs. Several businesses will be offering discounts.

  For more information or to get involved in this year's festival, call (631) 423-6100.

Bah Humbug!! The Fall Festival is SO much fun & brings together smiling faces from all across Long Island!! Why don't YOU "GO AWAY!!" on a vacation that weekend if you dred it that much. Or just eat a Zeppole and be happy! I nominate you to the No Fun Council - The faction of Long Islanders who just want to sit and watch this Island grow old and die, instead of have fun events for young families.
