Things To Do with Westchester Kids on Memorial Day Weekend: Parades, Festivals, Beaches Open

For those of you staying in Westchester for Memorial Day weekend, there's no shortage of events worth attending, both here and in the Hudson Valley.

Many towns and villages throughout the county celebrate the occasion with parades and ceremonies. Standouts include the Memorial Day Races & Fair, with fun festivities rounding out the occasion. Also on our radar are ways to honor Memorial Day from a historic standpoint, including depictions of the military in the Colonial era and another reflecting World War II.

A couple of the seasonal festivals we previously told you about also take place this weekend, and there are two circuses in town: the The Zerbini Family Circus and UniverSoul Circus. And, since Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer, Westchester beaches open on weekends for the season!

So let everyone else deal with the traffic and hassle of heading out of town; there’s plenty to do right here at home! Read on to see all of our top weekend picks, and consult our Event Calendar for even more options.
