Top Weekend Picks for June 28-June 30th

Hoping for lots of sun this weekend!  We seem to be in the pattern of humidity and chance of thunderstorms every day.  It might be a good weekend to check out some library programs, museums, indoor play places, or a bowling alley.  If the weather holds, don't forget the US Women's Open is happening at Sebonack in Southampton and the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League has games this weekend.  Plus all the farmer's markets are in full swing!

As we enter the holiday week (I think the 4th deserves a whole week of celebrations) , the East End Mommy will have a lot of events to post.  Don't forget the holiday week begins with the Ponquogue Concert this Monday.  The concert featuring Project Vibe is sponsored by the Southampton Town Youth Bureau and Project Vibe.  It will be held 6:00pm -9:00pm on Ponquogue Beach in Hampton Bays.  On the 4th, it is parade time!  And I will update this weekend with a guide to local firework viewing!
