This Columbus Day weekend, celebrate Montauk Village during their 33rd Annual Fall Festival on the Green in the center of downtown Montauk. On Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th, head to the end for a family-friendly festival featuring activities like inflatable rides, face painting, pumpkin decorating, street painting (only Sunday), crab races, pony rides (only Sunday), a free 30 horse Carousel and many more amusing happenings.

On Saturday, the festivities kickoff with the Famous Clam Chowder contest at 11 a.m. Several local restaurants will present remarkable chowders which will be available "until it runs out" typically around 1 p.m. The East End eateries will be judged by notable food personalities who will decide which seafood stew takes home the honor for best New England and Manhattan chowders. Festival attendees can also take part in critiquing the chowders by voting in the People's Choice Award. Winners will be announced at 3 p.m. on the Chamber's Facebook page and posted at www.montaukchamber.com. Saturday will also feature live music with Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks, Oktoberfest-style food, wine and beer tasting for adults. The first day of the Festival ends with a special fireworks tribute honoring the Montauk Fire Department, who is celebrating its 75th year. The Grucci firework display will take place at 7 p.m. over Umbrella Beach.
