It's hard to believe March has arrived, bringing with it signs of spring all around New York City, from melting snowbanks to outdoor play. One thing that doesn't change with the season is our overflowing events calendar, but we're making it easy for you to hit all the fun, spring-inspired events, including the Macy's Flower Show, Luna Park's Opening Day (early this year!), and of course St. Patrick's Day parades and children's activities as the city turns green March 17. We're also celebrating Dr. Seuss on March 2 with nearly two dozen wacky activities.
As soon as you've stored your favorite green garb, it's time to get ready for springtime Easter egg hunts and festivities. There's lots to do, from photo ops to brunch with the bunny of the hour as well as the spectacular Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival.
We've rounded up 16 must-hit happenings in our GoList. Beyond the holidays, it's a huge month for the performing arts. We've got details on the innovative Tilt Festival, plus Puerto Rican drumming and dancing. Head to the theater to watch puppetry-meet-technology in Lightwire Theater: Dino-Light, or go full-on dramedy with the premiere of the much-anticipated Mean Girls. Looking for a toddler friendly theater experience? You're in luck as Paw Patrol Live makes a stop here, too.
Don't forget to get a jump on spring break planning with our Getaways and Day Trips Guide, as well as our roundup on Spring Break Camps for NYC Kids. Grab early bird summer camp rates by perusing the rest of our Summer Camp Guide, which includes FREE camps and brand-new ones for the 2018 season.
