You're a mean one, Mr. Forecast...
Due to projected high winds upwards of 40mph accompanying storm-like conditions forecasted for this Saturday, December 3rd, our 2022 Town of Islip Holiday Festival and Market has regrettably been cancelled. Our elves have been hard at work crafting a magical winter wonderland for all to enjoy, and while we were so looking forward to ring in the 2022 Holiday Season with this inaugural Town event, safety is as always our number one concern.
