Stony Brook, NY – With winter hanging on a little longer this year we all deserve some outdoor fun celebrating spring, and one is planned in Stony Brook Village! Spring Appreciation Day festivities will take place Saturday, April 21 throughout the Center.
Along with the simple beauty of the area and a multitude of shopping and dining choices just steps from each other, it won’t be hard to spend the entire day enjoying a host of special events planned.
Festivities begin at 10 am with the Three Village School District-Wide “Spring into Art” K-12 Art Show at the Educational & Cultural Center. Beginning at noon and running throughout the day there will also be live music with WALK-FM and “Walkie Bear,” Burke & Brenda performing blues, country and Americana, the Cross Island Brass Quintet, a petting zoo, balloon artists and a Roseland School of Dance special performance at 1 pm.. Admission is free.
The historic Stony Brook Grist Mill officially opens for the season that day as well. It is located within walking distance of the Village on Harbor Road off Main Street and visitors will enjoy its charming country store as well as a “miller” dressed in period clothing offering a demonstration of grain being ground into corn just as it was in 1751. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children under 12 and the Mill is open noon to 4:30 pm weekends.
