October 5 through 8th at Heckscher Park in Huntington, NY, Long Islanders will once again come together for the popular Columbus Day weekend Fall Festival.
If previous years are any gauge, festival-goers can expect crisp air, underneath a canopy of changing leaves, where dads, kids, grandparents can revel in reconnecting outdoors.
Festival attendees have come to expect only the best from this weekend-long party:
-a world-class carnival,
-hundreds of vendors,
-three stages of entertainment,
-international food courts,
-a Hilltop Brewery,
–and numerous activities designed especially for young children.
The organizer of this premier event is The Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce.
“The Long Island Fall Festival is truly a celebration of community spirit,” says the Chamber’s Executive Director, Ellen O’Brien.
“It’s a collaborative effort joining local businesses, not-for-profit, government and local residents for a weekend of fun.”
Deck and Patio is happy to say that we will be one of the vendors. Our exhibit space in Heckscher Park will be just west of one of the three entertainment stages — the Chapin Stage.
“The event is a great opportunity for local businesses etc. to exhibit what we do in a relaxed, fun, atmosphere,” says Deck and Patio’s Dave Stockwell. “Visitors can stop and ask questions without feeling any pressure, not to mention being able to see up close things they might only see in photos on the web.”
Dave adds that Heckscher Park with all its natural beauty is an ideal place for us to showcase some of what we do.
“For example, ponds, waterfalls are just the kind of thing you’d run across in parks and woodlands when you’re out walking a trail. So our exhibit which includes a water feature will look right at home.
“We have a waterfall and stream outside our Huntington Station design center, but here, at a park, it’ll be easier for homeowners and business-owners to see one without any sense of obligation.”
Deck and Patio will also have a fire pit, landscaping ideas, pavers and boulders at the park.
“So come for a world-class carnival, two international food courts, four stages of live entertainment — and also get to know local Long Island businesses like us,” says Dave.
