Weekday Picks for Westchester Kids: Mary Poppins, Fondue, Eww…Gross!

Things to Do

Summer weekdays are a great time to pile on the fun, and this week there are plenty of ways to do so!

Hailing from Carnegie Hall is a performance by the National Youth Orchestra, which will be recorded for playback on National Public Radio. Also inspiring is a showing of the environmentally conscious and humorous film Oddball. For less high-brow entertainment, sink low at Eww...Gross!
