It’s a big weekend on the North Fork and there are a lot of great events happening. Best advice I have for this week: go to events.timesreview.com for complete schedules of all of the events happening this weekend.

One important piece of advice for the Strawberry Festival. There are no fireworks on Saturday night this year. The fireworks are tonight at 10 p.m. Read more information here.

The Riverhead Blues festival is happening behind the riverfront. Find one of the Times Review folks and grab a Riverhead-News Review bracelet. Before you go, check out this Q & A with musical legend Johnny Winter. Very cool story.

Times Review folks will also be on Shelter Island for the 33rd annual Shelter Island 10K. Grab a Shelter Island Reporter bracelet at the finish line. This year the 10k celebrates “Olympic Spirit”, and there are a few people who help bring this spirt back to Shelter Island. Read more about them in the 10K journal.

Those are the big three … but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other great things to do this weekend.

Tonight at East End Arts Council, the Metaphysical & Paranormal Investigations of New York will be reporting its findings of some of the Council’s unexplainable mysteries. You can see more about the event and also find out more about MPI of NY.

Looking for that special someone? Speed Dating will be at Hotel Indigo this Saturday night. You have to register in advance, so call or click before tomorrow.

Blue Point Brewery and Jamesport Vineyards have teamed up to present a “Wine, Beer and Oyster festival.” Perfect way to spend time with Dad on Father’s Day.

And last but not least, if the North Fork is going to be too busy for you this weekend, and you want to get away for a day, you can still get tickets for the Cutchogue New-Suffolk Library bus trip into New York City.

If your event wasn’t mentioned, make sure it’s on Events. If you need help posting your event, email mainroadred@timesreview.com, and I’ll be happy to help you.

Have a great weekend!  Get out and enjoy.
