Weekday Picks for Westchester Kids: Mega Outdoor Yoga, Fireman’s Parade & Carnival

Things to Do

The week ahead marks the last day of school for many Westchester families, a time to celebrate the start of summer (and, let’s face it, the moment of panic that our kids will soon be let loose!). We’ve got some really cool events lined up, so read on for our top picks.

As carnival season continues, kids will surely love to celebrate at the Yorktown Heights Fireman's Carnival and Parade. To unwind, especially after the stress of finals and a year of hard work, focus on mindfulness and health at the hugely popular Get On Your Mat For Mental Health - Outdoor Yoga Event. If your kids are gearing up for a babysitting gig, sign them up for this FREE Babysitting Clinic, where they can learn fundamentals of safety from a nurse.

This is far from all, so read on for the rest and then head to our Event Calendar for many more great activities to choose from and sign up for our weekly newsletters  to stay in the know!

Yorktown Heights Fireman's Carnival and Parade – Wednesday-Sunday
Though Friday night seems the perfect time to take in a summer carnival and celebrate the last day of school, we’re also tempted to go Wednesday, when there will also be the fireman’s parade. With five days of rides, games and fun, families are sure to find a time to head there for outdoor fun! Take advantage of savings on the organizer’s website.
