Summer’s almost over, but the good thing is that the weather is supposed to be amazing this weekend. Here are some fun things you can do this weekend with friends and family … or even by yourself.

Friday night is music night. There are live music events happening at Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport, the Peconic Riverfront in Riverhead and Mitchell Park.

Have scrap metal lying around? Drop off your aluminum, steel, iron, tin, copper or brass at Our Redeemer Luthern Church on Saturday. Help the youth group raise money for the 2013 LCMS National Youth Gathering. Call 631-379-0228 for pickup information.

For Sale: A little bit of everything. Saturday morning you can check out the “Churchyard Show” at Old Steeple in Aquebogue, a barn sale hosted by the Southold Presbyterian Women’s Group on Wells Ave in Southold, or the Old Town Arts & Crafts Guild’s book and bake sale in Cutchogue. Time it right and you can enjoy all three.

Fun for the whole family: Movies on the Beach at South Jamesport Beach. Watch “Dolphin Tale” at 7:30 p.m. and stay for “Goonies” at 9:45. Bring chairs and blankets, and a picnic dinner.

Sail aboard the schooner “SoundWaters” all weekend. Leave Mitchell Park Marina at either 2 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. Children must be over age 6 to participate.

On Shelter Island: Don’t miss the Farmers Market at the Shelter Island Historical Society. Live music and fresh produce. Spend the morning there and then head over to Southampton for a book signing and dessert with Tate’s Bake Shop owner Kathleen King.

The famous Pindar Sunflowers are ready for the picking. Visit Pindar for a nice glass of wine on their back porch and pay $1.00 for each stem you pick.

What’s happening this weekend on the North Fork? For starters, everyone’s favorite, the 38th annual Polish Fair, is Saturday and Sunday. My favorite? The kielbasa sandwiches and potato pancakes. Great food and music. You can read more about the festival history here.

The Old House in Cutchogue is offering behind the scenes tours on Saturday. Come out and view the oldest English house in New York state. Before you go, take a look at a video tour here.

Like tomatoes? Then you’ll love the Harbes Tomato festival. There’s also a corn-eating contest, face-painting, wine tasting and much more. Family Pack prizes will be awarded for the best dressed tomato. Head over there Saturday.
