The event will be held at Town Hall on Main Street in Smithtown from 9:00 AM through 3:00 PM.

Residents get in and out fast and can go back to enjoying their weekends.” - Ed Wehrheim, Town of Smithtown Supervisor

We hope to have a bigger turnout than last year's Summer event.” - Councilman Thomas McCarthy
