St. Patrick's Day troops into town this weekend, marching up Fifth Avenue on Saturday and through Brooklyn's Prospect Park on Sunday. If you need more inspiration, our St. Patrick's Day list offers outstanding info on everything shamrocky, including a St. Paddy's Day storytime with Pete the Cat at The Strand on Saturday and Sunday.
Naturally, green isn't the only game in town. The International Children's Film Festival comes to a rollicking conclusion Saturday evening, with its Best of the Fest Screening and Awards party and plenty of screenings on Saturday and Sunday for all ages and interests. Watson Adventures is back at the Met with a magical hunt for Harry Potter Fans, and Lightwire Theater dazzles dino aficionados with Dino-Lite at Symphony Space. Black Beauty plays at The New Victory Theater and the Lincoln Center has a tot-friendly Waves, All the Glows Sees.
There are signs of spring, too. Don't miss the weekend-spanning Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Flea at Our Lady of Grace Church in Brooklyn. Kids can pose with the Easter Bunny and hunt for eggs from 1–3pm both days. Find more egg hunts around town with our full rundown of NYC Easter fun, including Easter Bunny brunches. This weekend, the New York Hall of Science also opens its fabulous Rocket Park Mini Golf.
New interactive undersea art is available at the American Museum of Natual History with its Unseen Oceans exhibit. Plus, you can go full-on rainbow at the Kidding Around Flower Power Fest, planting seeds, decorating headbands, and creating watercolor cups to support the LGBT Community Center.
And there's more. (Because of course, there's always more!) As always, take a peek at our March GoList or our ever-expanding daily NYC Event Calendar.
