Labor Day kicks off September's activities, launching New York City's season of apple picking, fall festivals, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes.
September is here, and while the kids are heading back to school, there's still plenty of time for fun. The Richmond County Fair, the West Side County Fair, and the Queens County Fair all return with rides, games, and plenty of live music, unicycles are wheeling all over town, and trains are parading through Brooklyn.
All that, and The Met is opening the doors to its new 81st Street Studio. We're hosting a back-to-school block party, plus there's a big Rosh Hashanah celebration in the Flatiron District. By month's end, things are getting spooky, and the Bronx Zoo debuts an all-new after-dark attraction, Pumpkin Nights.
If you're in the mood for a fall outing, why not visit one of these apple-picking orchards? We promise to keep your weekends focused on fun with our Family Activity Calendar, and our Fall Fun Guide is ready for the change of seasons, too.
