With all that summer on Long Island has to offer, it is too easy to lose sight of what a wonderful town we have in our own Babylon Village!
When my big brother made a recent visit, we decided to stay local and enjoy my hometown. We visited the Babylon Historical Society and the Babylon Museum at Old Town Hall. Both provided eye-opening reminders of the significant parts of history written right here in our village. The lesson continued as we visited the new Bayman Statue and informational displays, and the Veteran’s Monument at Argyle Park. Wow, what an amazing history Babylon Village has had! Make plans to make your own visit and see what gems you can discover.
After our tour of discovery, we decided to peruse the shops and eateries. Brother Bill remarked on the wonderful array of diverse places to shop and dine lining Deer Park Avenue and Main Street. I guess the point is that during the fun and sun of summer, let’s not forget the local businesses that make Babylon Village such a special place!
A great big salute to our village for the parking improvements being made on the south side of Main Street over in the area behind Bunger’s Surf Shop. With the growth our village has enjoyed, every improvement to our available parking is a big plus.
Don’t miss out on the current production of “Hairspray” now through August 26th at The Argyle Theatre. Raves continue to pour in on the theatre itself, and their wonderful productions. What could be better than dinner and a show right here in Babylon Village?
The Babylon Village Arts Council will hold another Family Film Night at the gazebo on Wednesday, August 8th at 8 p.m. featuring the movie Ice Age.
Caught the buzz about a Babylon Village Block Party, a street event right downtown being planned for August 23rd. Check back here for more updates!
… AND THAT’S THE BUZZZZZZZ!
