Looking for the best things to do in Westchester this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for MLK Weekend.

Reinforce the meaning of MLK Day (“a day on, not a day off”) by investing time in the first Yorktown Youth Keeping the Dream, or as part of UJA-Federation Interfaith MLK Day of Service. Learn about African American Art and history by viewing the works of artists who came to prominence during the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights Movement. Young scientists can participate in a mini dinosaur excavation or learn the scientific procedure for extracting DNA. Alternatively, explore the outdoors and learn about the bald eagles that migrate along the Hudson River and where to spot them in the winter, just one of the many outdoor activities Westchester and the Hudson Valley have to offer.  

There's more! Don't miss our guide to winter fun in Westchester, our rundown of 30 great things to do in Westchester in January, and our list of the Best Things to Do in Westchester in January With Kids.
