Three Can’t Miss Events: Dec. 4 to 7


Holiday Tree Lighting with Grand Finale Fireworks
The chances to catch a tree lighting are pretty abundant on the Island, not to mention the main event in Rockefeller Center. But how many come with an over-the-top fireworks display? Add in ice sculpting demos, a magic show and carnival acts and this may be the one to see on Long Island.
Belmont Lake State Park, Saturday, Dec. 6, 4:15pm,


Cutchogue Holiday House Tour
There’s no place like home for the holidays, especially if that means four decked-out holiday houses. This self-guided outing pairs these seasonally resplendent homes and B&B’s with local wineries and restaurants for a tasty holiday tour culminating in Christmas carols and tree lighting at the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Society.
Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council, Saturday, Dec. 6, 11am to 4pm,

State Ballet Theatre of Russia in Swan Lake
It’s safe to say that ballet in December usually means The Nutcracker. Get outside the box and witness Tchaikovsky’s classic Swan Lake performed by the State Theatre Ballet of Russia.
Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, Friday, Dec. 5 8pm,
