This weekend is jam packed with events and things to do, and it looks like we'll be able to enjoy some sunshine at least through the weekend. Some of the highlights this weekend include a motorcycle ride to benefit rescue animals, a fireworks display on the East End, tours, scuba diving, craft shows, and more. Looking for some inexpensive fun? Why not visit one of Long Island's Parks - pack a picnic, and enjoy the mild weather!

Not only does this alternative route give you a little edge, it can also save you a ton of money on something that you can now keep forever.
