The East Northport Chamber of Commerce will hold its 20th annual East Northport Festival today through Sunday, featuring rides, live music and a food court.

"The East Northport Festival was started as a way to promote the businesses of East Northport while simultaneously celebrating the community," Stuart Besen, Northport Village attorney and one of the event's founders, said in a statement. "There is so much to do. I personally look forward to it because it marks the beginning of fall and the new school year and you get to reconnect with so many people."
