Back, by popular demand, is delicious food from Maple Tree Smokehouse BBQ of Riverhead. Beverages will include wine, beer, specialty cocktails, homemade sweet tea and lemonade, bottled waters.

And last, but certainly not least, music will be provided by local favorites, the Peconic County Ramblers. After food service, the floor will open up for dancing… and even if you’re not inclined to dance, the feel-good, toe-tapping music is a perfect backdrop for a festive celebration of summer!
