Get set to put on your jackets and head outside this weekend.Where to, you ask? Main Road Red has got some great suggestions for you during these chilly days of spring.

First up, Riverhead. This town is a sporting place to be this weekend. There’s the highly anticipated parade down Main Street for the L.I. Champion Blue Waves girls basketball team Sunday. We’ve also got Riverhead Little League’s opening day Saturday. The league will be celebrating its 60th anniversary in style with an expected appearance by former Mets legend Mookie Wilson. And don’t forget the annual fundraiser for the Riverhead High School baseball team.

East End Arts Council and the Suffolk County Historical Society are taking on an interesting topic: death. (Wouldn’t this be more appropriate for fall?) Click on those links more information about their shows.

For animals lovers, the Riverhead Move the Animal Shelter group will be present at two events: the opening of the town’s first dog park and a Hogs and Hot Rods –Rock the Shelter fundraiser. And if you still can’t get enough of the pooches, try Mutts and Mimosas at Palmer Vineyards
