Brightwaters Farms in Bay Shore is getting set to unlock its gates for its annual Fall Harvest — one of the biggest Halloween-time attractions in Suffolk County.

The Harvest kicks off Saturday, Oct. 3, and goes through Halloween, Oct. 31, which is a Saturday this year. Click here for the hours.

The autumnal celebration features musicians and magicians, fresh apples and cider, and real pumpkin patches where families are free to roam among the vines.

There’s also pony and hay rides, an assortment of farm animals and full concessions with fall food such as roasted corn, apple cider donuts and homemade baked pies.

And, there’s an old general store on the farm.

It’s $10 to enter the farm on weekends, and kids under 1 years old are free. Weekdays are free, including Fridays.

The entertainment has been moved to the outdoors due to the coronavirus pandemic, along with other precautions being taken.

Brightwaters Farms is located at 1624 Manatuck Boulevard.

Unlimited Hayrides
Farm Playground
