Spooky Night Tours, El Galeon, Sep's Sunday Supper, Owltober

The Highlights

Friday October 21 - Sunday October 23

The North Fork is in full glory in October, as the full event calendar shows. All weekend Hallockville Museum Farm leads spooky tours of the historic property with professional storytellers and actors. Tall Ship El Galeon remains docked and open for tours--really, don't miss this ship, last tours are on Sunday. Sunday have a proper harvest dinner with a local farm institution, East Marion's Sep's Farm. Hard to get much more North Fork than that. Saturday--Sunday if it rains, which it is not supposed to as of now--the North Fork Audubon Society celebrates Owltober with several events, including live owls presented as part of a talk, and a night time owl prowl. Bird watching is also very North Fork; we have one of the oldest annual bird counts in the country...
