Things To Do in Westchester on MLK Weekend: Volunteering, Kids' Film Fest, Rosie Revere

If you’re staying in town for the three-day MLK weekend, get ready for lots to do in Westchester and the Hudson Valley, including many great options that are FREE.

Reinforce the meaning of MLK Day (“a day on, not a day off”) by investing time in the MLK Day of Service or as part of UJA-Federation Interfaith MLK Day of Service. Embrace the season with wintry fun at the low-fee Hudson Valley Rail Trail Winterfest, featuring toasty charm like chestnut-roasting, wagon rides, and toasted marshmallows. Or learn All About Ice and its role in pre-refrigeration America. Find indoor fun at the Best of the New York International Children’s Film Festival, featuring short flicks from around the world. 

There's more! Be sure to check our January GoList and our Event Calendar to plan your entire weekend—and beyond!
