The Village of Islandia held its 7th Pumpkin Fest on October 22 on the grounds of Islandia Village Hall. Five hundred local children 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 decorated pumpkin and 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.
