March winds bring not only April showers but also much fun in and around Westchester—so if you’re getting tired of Ol’ Man Winter, don’t despair! In addition to the Spring Equinox and the restoration of daylight at dinner time, there are also several fun holidays to look forward to (and the myriad activities associated with them).
The first half of the month brings maple-sugaring season, allowing families to join naturalists in tapping maple trees as the first step toward creating maple syrup (some events even include the final step—eating it with pancakes!).
Whether you’re Irish or just pretend to be, you’ll enjoy the many St. Patrick’s Day parades taking place throughout the county, like the Annual Eastchester St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Also in March are Purim events, like Purim in the Caribbean, and Easter-themed activities like the multi-faceted Easter Egg Hunt. This month is also chock full of live entertainment, with performances like Room on the Broom, and the hands-on Annual WHUD Kids Fair.
