Thanksgiving Family Fun on Long Island

One week left until it’s time to carve the turkey and present your great aunt’s famous green bean casserole at the Thanksgiving dinner table! If you’re anything like us, you and your family can’t wait to dig in… and maybe you don’t have to. There are plenty of pre-Thanksgiving festivities taking place on Long Island this weekend to help you and your little ones get in the giving spirit. Here are a few of our favorites:


Saturday, November 18, at 7 a.m.
It’s not too late to strap on some festive fitness gear and gobble your way to the finish line in one of our hometowns! Funds from this year’s run will benefit YES Community Counseling and the fight against drug use to promote healthy families and a safe community. There’s even a youth fun run for the little ones!


Saturday, November 18-Sunday, November 19, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Take a step back in time, or several, to 1863! Enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas of an old-fashioned Thanksgiving with friends, family and the historical reenactors of Old Bethpage Village Restoration. There’ll be turkeys roasting over an open fire, pumpkin pies baking in a beehive oven, and more!


Saturday, November 18-Sunday, November 19, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Prefer to find out what Thanksgiving with the Native Americans was like instead? Head on down to Garvies Point Museum and Preserve in Glen Cove. You and your family will get to experience Northeastern Native American culture with ancient pottery making methods, primitive fire building, on-site open fire cooking, and more!
