Doggos and kiddos alike dressed as caped crusaders, animals of land and sea and magical creatures and overwhelmed Main Street in Port Jeff Saturday at its Harvest Festival.
The fest ran from noon to 5 p.m. and drew hundreds of guests from around the island to take in live music, taste food from Port Jeff restaurants, partake in a chowder crawl and watch craftsmen carve wood and pumpkins.
There were plenty of activities for children, from the Port Jefferson Education and Arts Conservatory window painting contest held at the Village Center to a scavenger hunt with the help of swashbuckling pirates from the the Pirates at Large entertainment group.
“I had a lot of pre registries and we had a lot of people come of the street with their kids to enter,” said Ilene Hope, the chairman of the window painting contest. “It was a great turnout.”
Nothing attracting more heads than the 2p.m. dog parade, sponsored by Fetch Doggy Boutique & Bakery, in which dozens of man’s best friends strolled down Main St to a delighted crowd of a few hundred spectators.
Michael Price, commander of the Justice League, 3 dogs dressed as Wonder Woman, Batman and Robin, said he attended the festival to support Fetch and show off his crime fighters.
“It’s Port Jeff, how could you not come out?” Price, 51, of West Islip, said. “It’s a beautiful day to be out here.”
