Three Can’t Miss Events: Oct. 2 to 5


Long Island Flower & Home Expo
Stop and smell the roses…or thousands of chrysanthemums and other flowers at this three-day home and gardening event featuring landscape design, stonework, pools, home décor, exterior design and local contractors and consultants. There will also be live jazz along with craft beer and wine tastings, cooking demos and a farmers market, carousal rides, hot cider and caramel apples.
Cradle of Aviation Museum, Friday, Oct. 3 to Sunday, Oct. 5 , $8 for museum members, $10 for non members,

The Bangles
It’s time to break out the hair spray, the “September Girls” are back! On the heels of the re-release of their 1982 self-titled EP, the all-female new wavers are back on the road cranking out 80s pop rock. We expect a full-blown “Walk Like An Egyptian” flash mob dance scene.
YMCA Boulton Center for the Performing Arts, Friday, Oct. 3, 8pm, $60 and up,

Nighttime Haunts
It’s starting to get a bit spooky in Melville. The F&W Schmitt’s Farm has been scaring the living daylights out of visitors, their words, for 20 years. Nightime Haunts start at 7pm and runs to 11pm or midnight depending on the day. So the only question is are you brave enough to go?
Schmitt’s Farm, 26 Pinelawn Rd., in Melville, Friday to Sunday through October, plus Monday, Oct. 13,
