Things To Do with Westchester Kids This Weekend, August 10-11, 2019

Here’s hoping you’re staying in town this weekend, ’cause there’s plenty for families to do in Westchester and the Hudson Valley!

The South Salem Fire Department's Carnival is in town, featuring rides, games, and food, as is the Otisville Country Fair, which offers distinctive twists like a chainsaw competition and a cast-iron frying-pan toss. Join a citizen-scientist project at the Great Hudson Estuary Fish Count, or join Hudson River–​philes at the Beacon Corn Festival. Ready to abandon yourself to summer? Take in a nighttime movie on the beach and don’t worry about the sand in your shoes.
