East Meadow keeps fun in the community


For almost 30 years, East Meadow residents, businesses and organizations have gathered to celebrate the pride they have in their community. Community Day went off successfully on June 8, and brought together hundreds of people throughout the day-long event in Speno Park, right in the heart of East Meadow.

So many local organizations are part of the leadership that helps make Community Day possible, such as the Kiwanis Club of East Meadow, the East Meadow Chamber of Commerce, and more. Local business and vendors pack into the park, catering to all members of the community in a free and family-oriented event.

For those looking for athletic activities, there was an intro to pickleball clinic, a chair pilates class, youth lacrosse clinics, Catholic Youth Organization basketball clinics and two runs — a fun run with Girls on the Run and a Color Run. In the East Meadow Baseball Softball Association, there was an all-star baseball game at 10 a.m., followed by an all-star softball game at 12:30 p.m.

Along with a pie eating contest, live performances by the New York Dancers Studio, Alexa’s Dance Studio, Center Stage Music and The Sob’s, and a vendor fair, there was many things for the community to participate in and take in.

East Meadow Community Day is a beloved event that everyone looks forward to year after year. Whether families were running around and having fun, or popped by for some live entertainment and treats, there was something for everyone to enjoy in Speno Park.
