Looking for the best things to do in New York City this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.

Mother's Day weekend is always especially busy and this year is no exception, with a weekend-long celebration at the New York Botanical Garden, a special Mother's Day deal to see the New York Theatre Ballet's weekend production of Mother Goose, and a chance to race through an obstacle course in Riverside Park. Completely FREE kid pleasers include rides on Jane's Carousel (in honor of its centennial!), a Kate Spade potted plant pop-up, and an alfresco screening of Spider-Man: No Way Home

We have piles of possibilities in our Family Activity Calendar, as well as 24 Mother's Day brunch recommendations and 25 fun ways to spend the day. No matter what you do, we'd like to wish you a Happy Mother's Day from all of us!
