It’s time for Dad’s special day, and a special celebration is in order. View our roundups of Father's Day fun in Westchester and the Lower Hudson Valley for ideas for ways to honor Dad, Grandpa and the other special father figures in your life.
Three different towns happen to be celebrating community pride with day-long festivals that offer the likes of performances, trolley tours, food and more. Of these, the Newburgh Illuminated Festival is on the grandest scale, with hoop dancing, yoga, a children’s area, more than 40 bands over 10 hours and lots more.
Another common theme this weekend is international culture. Ethnic festivals include the colorful Yonkers Ukrainian Heritage Festival, and a performance of music from around the globe is in store at the FREE Music Under the Stars.
Back by popular demand is The Amazing Max, whose talents have caught the attention of The Huffington Post and PBS Kids. For 18th-century fun, try New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site Children’s Day.
