Get Ready for Plenty of Family Fun and Festivities at Long Island's International Festival

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 18, 2009) - If you're looking for a great place to spend a September weekend, Long Island's International Festival is the place to be! This fun-filled Festival will take place on Friday - Sunday, September 18-20, 2009 along the seaside beach at Babylon's beautiful Tanner Park in Copiague. Admission is free.

The festival will feature an exhilarating carnival, live musical entertainment, pirate show, "Ocean View Craft & Gift Show," a dog themed canine fashion show, Pizza Eating Contest and numerous other exciting activities including Game Crazy's Gaming Tent. Don't be surprised if you see pirates who landed on the beach re-enacting a time in history when they sought to control the seas while searching for buried treasure. This is a great family event that provides plenty of fun and festivities.

Children (and adults) of all ages will love the exhilarating rides featured in the Festival's thrilling world-class carnival, presented by All County Amusements.
