Dear Long Islander,
It's safe to say that you can truly begin to feel the crispness of Autumn in the air. After weeks of grueling heat, thunderstorms, and even tornado touchdowns, the weather seems to be evening out, and cooling down. September has the perfect balance of sunshine and cool breeze, making it optimal for spending weekends outdoors enjoying Fall Festivals, apple picking, and other seasonal past times. From Nassau to the East End, this weekend is packed with everything that makes the season special, and plenty of opportunities to kick back and relax, or get out and experience something new and exciting. Whatever you choose to do this weekend, Long Island, make sure you take advantage of the beautiful weather, and welcome the Harvest Season!
