Events for New York City kids just get better and better in June. On Saturday, June 10, kids can go on a treasure hunt on Randall's Island, or witness the release of 100,000 ladybugs at a playground in Tribeca. On Sunday, June 11, at Triassic Playground in Queens, it's Dinosaur Day (of course). See our guide to the best playgrounds in Queens, as well as our guide to playgrounds across the city.
All weekend, the Astoria Park Carnival runs in Queens while the Big Apple BBQ Block Party fills bellies in Manhattan. In June, New York City has a street fair or festival for just about everything. Thinking of a day trip? See our guide to nearby strawberry festivals and strawberry farms. Summer heat is finally headed our way, so perhaps these nearby water theme parks will fit the bill this weekend, or cool off locally at these FREE NYC splash pads.
