Weekend Fun: Playland Closing Day, Play2Learn Festival, Grange Fair

This weekend offers tons of fun things to do with kids in Westchester and the Hudson Valley!

All ages will love the return of the Yorktown Grange Fair, featuring family performances, fun contests, and lots more. The Play2Learn Festival celebrates the importance of childhood play with more than 40 options for fun (all FREE!), while short films from around the world will be shown at the New York International Children’s Film Festival. American history hits home with a local perspective and assorted colonial fun at the Revolutionary War & Burning of Bedford Re-enactment
