We might be in the middle of a Nor'Easter, but we are hopping into spring (or bust) this weekend! A sure sign warmer weather is on the way? Carousels all around town are starting to spin. On Saturday, kids can once again vie for the brass ring at the Forest Park Carousel and Flushing Meadows, and the Battery's SeaGlass Carousel is now open every day as well. Also on Saturday, Luna Park opens for the season, and a small $5 donation scores a wristband to ride all day... and mini golf, go-kart, and batting cage fans can celebrate opening day at Staten Island Fun Park.
On Saturday, families with a penchant for activism can make their voices heard in solidarity with the Parkland, Florida teens by falling in step with March for Our Lives or the Brooklyn Children's Museum's March Against Gun Violence.
On Sunday, Passover events make an appearance at the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the Jewish Museum, and the Kaufman Center produces a family musical, Schlemiel Crooks, in anticipation of the upcoming holiday.
Easter is actually not until April 1, but the Bunny came early this year and he's fully employed this weekend at egg hunts: Kids can catch up with him on Saturday at the Bartow-Pell Mansion, Brooklyn's Industry City, Highbridge Park, Old Stone House, Marine Park (to name just a few locations), and on Sunday for brunch at the Aviator Sports and Events Center in Brooklyn, and at Carl Schurz Park's 11th Annual Egg Hunt.
