If you can't afford to go island hopping in the Caribbean this summer, try hopping around this Island to Sunken Meadow State Park and partake in a seafood feast every Wednesday.
A ten-minute car ride from Commack, the Pavilion at Sunken Meadow hosts Seafood Fest on Wednesday evenings from 6 p.m to 9p.m. throughout the summer.
The concession offerings include lobster, clams,mussels and shrimp, and of course fries and ice cream for the kids.
Lessings’ Seafood Special includes the aforementioned shellfish, corn and potato for $25.00. Beer and white wine are available as well.
Musical acts set up just outside of the Field 1 concession. The song sets are generally mellow and include a few James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, and Billy Joel covers.
Be sure to arrive early, as many families stake claim to a sandy spot just beyond the boardwalk so that kids can romp on the beach.
Others choose to sit at the plentiful umbrella-shaded tables
Arrive as close to the 6 p.m. start time as you can, and the parking fee is waived.
Your family’s summer escape doesn’t have to cost a fortune. You’ll feel more than fortunate to live so close to the water after attending a few nights of Seafood Fest at Sunken Meadow State Park.
The event runs weekly through September 7th.
