Well, I hope you’re ready because our hamlet’s big day is finally here.This Saturday, June 29, is the day for fun in East Quogue.

Then, at noontime, our Village Green comes alive with the festivities marking the 10th anniversary of our beautiful park. This not-to-be-missed event, co-sponsored by the East Quogue Chamber of Commerce and the East Quogue Civic Association, runs until 4 p.m.
