Greetings Hamptons Mouthpiece readers, Where did the summer go? Can you believe Labor Day is here already? So many events are crammed into this weekend for what some believe is the last summer weekend in the Hamptons. Contrary to what some believe the Hamptons does not shut down after Labor Day and hibernate until next year. Many year-round residents look forward to Labor Day, many are moving back into their homes from renting for the summer. The beaches are not as crowded and that is the time that I like to go. Our students in the East End do not return back to school until September 9th and it is a relaxing time for many year-round residents before the hussle of back to school. I absolutely love the Hamptons in the Fall, there are so many wonderful things to do, so when you leave to resume your life after Labor Day, come back for a long weekend, there are many FUN things to do, like Wine tours in the Northfork, Apple picking, Harbor Festival in Sag Harbor, the Music Festival, SeptemberFest in Southampton, Halloween in the Hamptons, and much much more. The beaches are free to attend and the water is at its best in September. This is also the time that I go out to eat because I think the food and service are just better after a busy summer and I am looking forward to visiting FRESH in Bridgehampton, NY. Listed below are some things to do this weekend and some really big things happening in the Hamptons during the Fall.Hampton Classic 2013 … August 25 – September 1 WHERE: Bridgehampton, NY (off Montauk Highway, Route 27 – at 240 Snake Hollow Road), 65-acre showgrounds, located near some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast, amidst the fashionable Hamptons summer scene.
