Thus, you can pridefully show them off at your home or give them as special gifts.

1863 Thanksgiving Celebration

Long Island Turkey Trail Trot 5K
Head down to Bethpage State Park this fall. Then support the Never Stop Running Foundation for the third annual Long Island Turkey Trail Trot.

Pumpkin Drop at the Cradle of Aviation Museum
Watch your pumpkins go splat as the gravity does take over where The Cradle of Aviation Museum invites visitors to drop them from the museum’s second-floor balcony. Plus, bring your own pumpkin or purchase one from the museum for $2 is while the supplies last. On the two floors, the pumpkins then become a pile of pulp two floors below. Thus, it is a great way to demonstrate the effects of gravity. Plus, a great opportunity to let out some frustration out.
