Things To Do in Westchester on Veterans Day Weekend

The brief lull between the holidays brings a motley assortment of family activities this weekend for Westchester and Hudson Valley families. Take advantage of some low-key adventures and a sizable offering of freebies over the three-day Veterans Day weekend.

First and foremost, keep veterans in mind at any of the tributes planned by local towns, including the Veterans Day Parade and Ceremony in Somers. Families can experience a contemporary tap-dance production at a matinee performance, while hobbyists can indulge in their passion at the Train & Hobby Show. Little fans of wee woodland creatures can search for them and build them a home at Fairy Houses and Nature Walk, while STEM fans can partake in a global celebration at International Science Center and Science Museum Day

Read on for all this and more, and be sure to check our Event Calendar. Don't forget to sign up for our weekly newsletters, and consult our November GoList to plan the rest of the month!
