I am really glad we are staying in town this weekend and I hope you will, too. There is SO much to do that you don’t want to miss any of it. Seriously, not only is Governors Island opening with a huge family festival, but also, the lower east side is hosting the fabulous Egg Rolls and Egg Creams event. And, there is the super-fun World Science Festival Street Fair in Washington Square Park plus other smaller but still very cool events, like Taste, a day of fine food tastings to support The Lab Schools or the community-minded festival at The Glass Garden in NYU or one of the other 22 festivals taking place in June.
If a huge festival isn’t quite your thing, there is also the Atlantic Avenue ArtWalk
where you can visit with artists at work (and a lot more), a couple of high end craft fairs
, great author-led book readings
or the Fish Tales Extravaganza
at the aquarium. Parades
, nature activities
and even an old fashioned subway ride
are all on offer for you.
Don’t forget that this is the first weekend of June and some area museums have free admission
and special family programming, including CMOM on Friday night, The Brooklyn Museum on Saturday night and The Queens Museum of Art on Sunday.
This weekend is packed with lots of fun events. Choose one or two from the list below and have a great weekend.
