Fall Equinox Festival Highlights: The Fun and Wonder of Migration
Join CEED for our Fall Equinox Festival: Saturday, September 18, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Washington Lodge.
This is going to be our best Fall Equinox Festival ever! We’ll celebrate all the marvels of migration on Long Island. Here are a few highlights:
- Arrizza and his magical flamenco guitar music.
- Reggae band Sky Fire will get us dancing and swaying. They’ll remind our migratory birds what they’re heading back to in the Caribbean!
- Birds of Prey! Live raptor display with expert educators from Sweetbriar Nature Center. Every 15-20 minutes a new bird!
- Taiko Drummers. This ancient communication system will send good vibes south ahead of our migrating wildlife.
- The Long Island Parrot Society will have talkers and squawkers to marvel at.
- Activities for kids!
There will also be great food from the Lunchbox food truck, interesting natural product vendors, and fun activities for the whole family. There’s no charge, so please plan on joining us!
