Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year for most youngsters—a night of tricks and treats (usually too many treats), costumes and decorations, and the opportunity to stay up a wee bit past bedtime (if they’re lucky). But while Halloween has the potential to be a super fun night for everybody involved, it can also become a nightmare if you’re not careful. Here are some trick-or-treating safety tips to share with your kids before you embark on your night of spooky fun.
This summer, social media was taken by storm as videos of people from all over the world dumping buckets of ice water flooded our Facebook newsfeeds. Initially, many were confused about the tremendous influx of people performing a seemingly ridiculous stunt, but word spread quickly to explain the purpose of the videos: creating awareness and raising funds for research to cure ALS.
ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also called Lou Gehrig’s disease), is a horribly debilitating neurodegenerative disorder, one that many were unfamiliar with prior to the ALS ice bucket challenge. From children and families to politicians and celebrities, it seemed as though everyone joined forces to participate in a worldwide fundraiser to help find a cure for a terrible disease that takes far too many lives every year.

At All Island Transportation, we’ve scoured the Internet to bring you a list of every single place to go pumpkin picking on Long Island, and have included it down below!
Be careful if you look elsewhere! Nearly every list of pumpkin picking locations on Long Island that we found was full of incorrect information! The team at All Island Transportation has gone above and beyond to make sure our list is 100% verified from every individual location’s website, and if the information wasn’t available online, we filled in “call for details.” Every location has a contact number, and almost all have their hours of operation. Have fun and happy picking!
Whenever you think of the Fall season, one of the first things that come to mind is probably the word “harvest.” Everyone knows that Autumn is the best time for apple and pumpkin picking, along with a whole slew of other delicious fruits and vegetables that are ripe and just waiting to be picked!

At All Island Transportation, we think it’s really important to be able to provide our customers with the latest news in local activities around the community. It’s super inconvenient that all this information is spread out so far throughout the internet—shouldn’t you be able to find everything you need about Long Island events in one place?
