Looking for something to do this weekend? Look no further – and plan on being busy. Sayville has a lot to offer this weekend.
Head downtown tonight and you will find some entertainment. The last Family Fridays event of the season starts at 6:30 p.m. and features Erik's Reptile Edventures. This event was originally set for July 23, but was rained out. Come down to the Common Ground to meet Erik and his reptile friends.
Also on Main Street Friday night is the last of the three-park ArtWalk series. This event, which is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, has been a success this season and has, luckily, brought good weather each time. Stroll down Main Street to hear great music and see local artwork.
Kimberly Glutz, a Long Island photographer and digital artist, will be featured on Friday night. Her latest nature inspired series entitled "Petals" will be on display at Cornucopia, health food store and café. Since Cornucopia closes at 7 p.m., be sure to make it your first stop Friday night. Glutz's work will be on display at the store for the month of September.
On Saturday, start your day with Pilates at the Common Ground from 9 – 10 a.m. and then head to the Farmers Market by the train station to pick up some great local food.
This weekend is the annual Seafood, Craft and Music Festival at the Long Island Maritime Museum. This event, which has become a favorite on Long Island, combines arts and crafts, education and live entertainment with some of the Island's best seafood. Gates open at 10 a.m. on Saturday and close at 6 p.m. Admission is $5 with kids under 5 entering for free. There will be live music from noon – 6 p.m. Check out the musical lineup below.
Also on Saturday, Sayville varsity and junior varsity football teams are playing in a multi-team scrimmage at Bay Shore High School. Go and cheer on the Golden Flashes. Also, the library has a full calendar of events.
The Seafood festival continues on Sunday and weather predictions are saying it will be beautiful so head down to Sayville Beach as well before the festivities.
If you don't need a nap just thinking about it, we will see you downtown.
