Veterans Day Weekend Things to Do in NYC with Kids: Parade, Canstruction, Rock Center Tree
Monday is Veterans Day, and that means it's time for the biggest celebration of service in the United States: The NYC Veterans Day Parade. You can also salute our military at Veterans Day Weekend events at the New-York Historical Society, or join Prospect Park's Veterans Day family programs when school's out on Monday.
Great shows and concerts fill this weekend: The Naughty Penguin misbehaves at Old Stone House, The Brave Little Tailor returns to Galli Theater, and The Okee Dokee Brothers sing up a storm at Symphony Space. Don't miss the launch of this year's Broadway Under the Stars series, with free performances by the cast of The Lightning Thief and other hit shows.
Plus, you can watch the ginormous tree get craned into place in Rockefeller Center. Can't wait for holiday lights? Catch a free preview of the NYC Winter Lantern Festival. And Canstruction begins the big build-up to Thanksgiving.
