New Year's Weekend Things To Do on Long Island with Kids

Close out the year with some good old-fashioned family fun. There's still time to see Long Island homes with spectacular light displays

Clean out that playroom and donate old toys and gear at these Long Island charitable spots. Then torch some holiday calories at these indoor skating rinks.

Elsewhere this weekend take in a family-friendly ball drop or perhaps a first-day nature hike

Take one last peek at our Long Island Holiday Guide as many seasonal activities are closing at the end of 2019. Don't see a great event here? Add it to our calendar yourself.
