Get ready to stroll along Love Lane and Pike Street in Mattituck this Saturday to enjoy local food, crafts and raffles at the 39th annual “Old Fashioned Street Fair” hosted by the Mattituck Chamber of Commerce.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes the crowning of Little Mr. and Miss Mattituck — a beloved community tradition.
