On Thursday, The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons will host a “Discover the Riverhead Revival!” walking tour, with visits to a number of spots on East Main Street.
Highlights of the trip include an 11 a.m. tour of the Suffolk Community College’s Culinary Center, kitchens and demo areas; a 12:15 p.m. tour of the renovated Art Deco landmark, The Suffolk Theatre, which opened in March 2013; a 3 p.m. welcome by Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter, with refreshments and a tour of the three-building complex that includes the Sea Star Building, Hyatt Place Hotel, and Long Island Aquarium and Exhibition Center; and a 4 p.m. walk along the Peconic River, on the new Riverwalk.
To register, call Gladys Remler, LWV special events co-chair, at 631-288-9021.
Those registered will receive a two-page itinerary of the day, with information on nearby restaurants, art centers, museums and shops that participants can visit on their own.
Gladys Remier, co-chair of the League's special events committee explained why the event was organized.
"The League of Women Voters of the Hamptons' Special Events Committee has been planning some educational day trips to nearby cultural sites. This wonderful 'Discover the Riverhead Revival' walking tour follows up on a tour of Shelter Island's historic Sylvester Manor that occurred in June."
