It looks like there is a rainy weekend in store for much of Long Island. Don’t even think about using the rain as an excuse to stay home, though. There are sidewalks sales happening, rain or shine, local produce to sample at the 2014 Season Kick-Off Taste North Fork and more. So grab your umbrella, your rain boots and whatever other foul-weather gear you need to brave the weather and get ready to enjoy the weekend. Here are three can’t miss events.
