The days are noticeably starting to shorten, but summer is still in full swing on the North Fork. The big event this weekend is Dan's Harvest East End, a festival of local food and drink. Shelter Island offers a special treat--Shakespeare at Sylvester Manor. Enjoy Love's Labor's Lost in a beautiful, historic setting.

Sang Lee Farms is offering U-Pick cherry tomatoes this weekend, several organic varieties--find your favorite! Peconic Landing screens a Buster Keaton film, with a professional silent film organist scoring the show, live. Three different art exhibits open with receptions, an author does an event and the North Fork's usual few dozen concerts get several very special editions.

For people who want to get out on the water, this weekend offers a special chance: three afternoon and three sunset cruises on an 80' schooner, the Soundwaters.
