The Village of Islandia held its 8th Annual Pumpkin Fest on October 20 on the grounds of Islandia Village Hall. Eight hundred local children and residents came dressed in their favorite costumes, decorated pumpkins, took part in a costume parade and helped themselves to cookies and hot cocoa. Prizes were awarded for best costume.

In addition, there was a petting zoo and hayrides for the children, as well as live music from “Joe the Singing Bus Driver” and an appearance from the Central Islip Fire Department, which offered literature on fire safety and prevention.
