On July 9, Islandia Village residents came out to the 6th Annual BBQ. Village employees and local Boy Scouts served residents hamburgers, hot dogs, ice cream, soda and water. Children enjoyed the day with train rides, games, pony rides, a petting zoo, arts and crafts; face painting, piñatas and a hula hoop contest. A local DJ provided the music to keep the party going.

In addition, there was a blueberry pie eating contest with the winners getting a blueberry pie as the prize. The Central Islip Fire Department was also on hand to teach children about fire safety. The village also had its DWI Awareness program, in which those on peddle carts donned a pair of goggles to simulate the effects of being intoxicated and attempted to navigate a course designed by the Public Safety Department.
