For the first time in over 300 years, the Village of East Hampton will have a Fall Festival in Herrick Park! There will be 60 booths set up in the downtown park on Saturday, October 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at which local artists, shopkeepers and 20 non-profits can display their wares and information. Dance or listen to live music all day – from bluegrass to blues. Headline acts include Gene Casey and the Lonesharks and Inda Eaton. Experience a live community mural painting project, a YMCA sponsored Kidzone, jumping house, and climbing wall; as well as hands-on science and art projects sponsored by the East End Children’s Museum in the gazebo.
Magic, Trapeze, Pumpkin Patch and Costume Parade!
Look for a magic show from MagicSteve, an aerial trapeze display from artist Robin Lynch, a pumpkin carving contest, a costume parade at noon (sponsored by Eleanor Whitmore Childhood Center in East Hampton) and food and drink. Sponsored by the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce, Ringel states, “It’s a true community event to celebrate Fall and the harvest season, as well as to showcase our wonderful businesses and organizations.” Village eateries will be open all day and offering specials. Sponsors include DiscoverLI, Halstead Real Estate, The Baker House, and London Jewelers.
