This Saturday marks the 47th annual Earth Day, and with the event falling on a weekend, there are many ways for Westchester families to go green.
Among the many Earth Day activities we’ve rounded up are Green Ossining’s Earth Day Festival, an in-park event offering conscience-raising information about food sustainability and fun kids’ activities, as well as Sky and Earth Day, a motley indoor event combining cloud study, telescope viewing and a screening of The Victorian’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Another headline event is the return of the annual Sheep-to-Shawl, a historic-themed festival for contemporary sheepish fun. Another fun way to step back in time is at the annual Colonial Day, where visitors can buy sweets from the colonial baker and practice their ABCs in a one-room schoolhouse. Sports fans, on the other hand, can browse collectibles and memorabilia (and snag a free pack of cards) at the Baseball Card Show.
All this and much more can be found on our Event Calendar (including ways to spend spring break), and our April GoList can help you zero in on some of our favorites throughout the month.
