School is back in session, but for NYC kids there's so much fun to be had, it might as well still be summer. In Manhattan, check out the popular West Side County Fair, a family-friendly art show in Carl Schurz Park, or the annual Morningside Lights procession, a lovely illuminated evening walk through the Upper West Side. On Sunday, tugboats vie for top honors in a can't-miss race down the Hudson.
The Bronx is action-packed this weekend too. Head to City Island for the Fall Arts and Crafts fair (make a day of it with dinner at one of the island's kid-friendly restaurants). Or visit Wave Hill's weekend-long family art project.
In Brooklyn, Circus Amok runs, well, amok in Sunset Park on Saturday and Prospect Park on Sunday. And don't miss the annual Bike Jumble, a great opportunity to find a new or used bike!
