The 42nd Hampton Classic Horse Show opened Sunday under a sunny sky, a sure sign of the near end of the famed Hamptons summer season. For the next eight days, however, this spectacular annual equestrian event will host the highest levels of competition for hunter-jumper horses and riders of all ages and abilities. From the youngest local “leadline” riders all the way to Olympic and World Champions, the prestigious Hampton Classic Horse Show welcomes them all.
Considering how few women, until modern times, have become artists, it’s easy to see why Frida Kahlo is such a fascinating figure. Not only is Kahlo noteworthy for her self-portraits that link pre-Columbian and Christian symbols, she was also praised by the likes of André Breton who considered her a feminine force within the Surrealist Movement. And she was the wife of the famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera.

The most barked about event of the year: ARF’s Stroll to the Sea features food, pet-themed vendors, contests, and a two-mile charity walk to the ocean and back. Held on the grounds of Mulford Farm in East Hampton, it is the perfect way to say good-bye to summer and welcome the fall.
