Long Island Events February 12-13: Chocolate, Sweetheart Party, Romeo and Juliet and More

Things to Do on Long Island with Kids

Thank goodness Valentine's Day is nearly here, all this snow is driving me to chocolate, and it's nice to have an excuse. If you feel the same way we have some chocolate themed activities this weekend, and a Sweetheart Party at two different Gymboree locations. If you are doing a better job than I am sticking to those resolutions, we also have a ballet, a puppet show and some music for you and family to enjoy this weekend. Read on for all the fun.
