BARBARAELLEN KOCH PHOTO | Wayne and Diane Dedicke of Calverton arrived Saturday on their boat to secure a spot on the town dock for the Riverhead Country Fair.

Wayne and Diane Dedicke of Calverton docked their 37-foot-long cabin cruiser along the Peconic Riverfront Saturday morning, making sure they were first in line for next week’s Riverhead Country Fair.

Just as they have for the past 15 years, the Dedicke’s picked a spot in the center of the town dock for a prime viewing spot of all the fair exhibits and entertainment.

Mr. Dedicke will still work all week at Brookhaven National Laboratory, but he and his wife will spend their nights on the boat downtown, a mini-staycation for them and their dogs — samoyeds Breeze, 6, and Molly, 11. Mr. Dedicke said the town sends a recreation department employee to collect the dockage fee of $25 per day.

The 37th annual Riverhead Country Fair takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Sunday, Oct. 7. The fair will feature live entertainment, vendors, farm animals, homemaking and needlecraft competitions, food and local produce, carnival rides and more. Admission is free.
