Feel like kicking up your heels and having some fun with the family? Well, you can come down and have a fantastic family day on Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., at the third annual Phillips Avenue Community Festival!
There will be carnival games, bouncy castles and other children’s activities, like face-painting. Local vendors and community groups will have booths and a variety of entertainment will take the main stage. There will be a children’s entertainer, Brady Rymer, and the BMX stunt show is always a crowd-pleaser.

The Southampton Town Youth Bureau would like to thank the Flanders community for coming together on April 13 to build a brand new playground at Iron Point Park. Special thanks to the Flanders-Northampton Volunteer Ambulance for helping with food and material donations, and the Flanders Fire Department for bringing over their new pumper truck to help mix cement. Both groups also had many volunteers on-site to help throughout the day.
We would also like to recognize the Flanders, Riverside and Northampton Community Association and Bay View Pines Civic Association for helping with the fundraising throughout the year, as well as having volunteers the day of the build. The Southampton Superior Officers Association and Panera Bread of Hampton Bays also provided food for all the volunteers and also made donations.
Thank you to all those out there who were able to volunteer their time to help get this awesome playground built!
