Carnaval, Dine at Dusk, Barn Dance, Opera, Theater, Haunted Lighthouse Cruise

Cover photo: Barn Dance at Hallockville, photo credit Gabrielle Colen. The 6th Annual Carnaval at Sparkling Pointe is a true spectacular of Brazilian music and costumed dancers, with wine and food too. On the more serene side, Corey Creek/Bedell offer a delicious sunset vineyard dinner.

For down-home family fun, you simply can't beat Hallockville Museum Farm's 13th Annual Barn Dance, where novices and experts alike can enjoy dancing the called moves and local food and drink.

Opera aficionados have two great shows, one a Hortons Point Lighthouse, where the setting alone is worth a trip, and a blend of international and local talent at Dilberto Winery.

Theater lovers can enjoy the fun, comedic musical All Shook Up, the much more intense Seven, about global women's right activists, or a world-class performance of Arthur Miller's A View from a Bridge captured in HD.

For unusual outdoor fun, the East End Seaport Museum's haunted lighthouse cruise can't be beat.
