“We’re hoping for good weather so we really can have the event around a campfire in the yard,” said Maaike Hoekstra, president of Tompkins Corners. “And we’ll have marshmallows for roasting and makings for s’mores.” The event begins at 7 p.m., following the farmers’ market.

Tompkins Corners is located at 729 Peekskill Hollow Road. The suggested donation is $10 but children age 9 and under are free. Reservations may be made by calling 845 528-7280 or emailing [email protected].
