Manhasset Al Fresco Fall Fest is scheduled take place Sunday, Oct. 17 from 3:30 to 9:30 p.m on North Plandome Road. Due to last weekend’s weather conditions, the event was rescheduled for this weekend.

Road closures will be between Hillside Avenue and Colonial Parkway, creating a pedestrian-only zone. The Chamber encourages everyone to come support our community and local businesses by enjoying outdoor dining and live entertainment on Plandome Road.

The past Manhasset Al Fresco events have been a huge success. The purpose of the events were to “Lift up local,” the Town of North Hempstead’s initiative to support local businesses in recovery efforts following the coronavirus.

The Chamber has partnered with Gold Coast Film Festival to host an outdoor screening of the movie Casper at 6:30 p.m. Make sure to bring your own chairs. Prior to the movie Gold Coast will have a glass painting booth from 4 to 6 p.m. and the Manhasset Chamber will have “ghostly” crafts. Manhasset Cinema will be selling refreshments during the film.

In addition, Philly Pretzels of New Hyde Park will be at the event selling pretzels and lemonade, and will be donating partial proceeds to fundraise for Manhasset Chamber’s Beautification.

Participating restaurants include Publicans, with its Oktoberfest themed menu, Greens Irish Pub, Pita Station and Gino’s. Outdoor reservations are always recommended. DJ Rad will kick off the event, along with live music by Beyond Control at 6 p.m. Smoking Rockets will end the night immediately after the movie screening at 8:30 p.m.

The Rock Climbing wall was such a huge success at the last event, Kelly’s Kitchen is bringing it back. Free for all to enjoy and thanks to the Chamber, a mobile Escape Room is coming to Manhasset Al Fresco and will be available from 6 to 8 p.m. Visit the Chamber’s table for Chalk the Town, kids crafts, giveaways, Manhasset Al Fresco apparel and donations for Manhasset Beautification.
