The Riverhead Town Board members seemed to like what they saw during a discussion at Thursday’s work session on bringing WaterFire to the Peconic River. Lisa Lowenstein, an advisor to WaterFire creator Barnaby Evans, also said she was happy with the amount of enthusiasm for the project she has encountered from residents and town officials. The next steps will be to find funding for the project. The Town Board also gave an unofficial go-ahead to the new Winter Farmers’ Market proposed for the former McCabe’s/Dinosaur Museum building on East Main Street, which starts Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be held on Saturdays through May 16.
