Things To Do with Kids in New Jersey on Mother's Day Weekend, May 11-12, 2019

Spend quality time with Mom and Mother Nature on this celebratory second weekend of May. Get up close with New Jersey's natural beauty at National Public Gardens Day, Azalea Festival, and Mother's Day at Mountain Lakes. Plus, enjoy more outdoor time at spring festivals like the Children's Festival in Smithville and the Lake Hopatcong Block Party. Need an indoor break? Productions of Daniel Tiger and Rapunzel take the stage this weekend. 

On Sunday, start your Mother's Day celebrations on a delicious note with brunch in Northern NJ or the shore. Make the day a memorable one, whether you choose to spend it at a theme park like Morey's Piers, a winery, such as Valenzano or Alba, a wine trail at Terhune, or watching races at Monmouth Park
