Thank goodness Columbus Day weekend is three days—you’ll need every minute to soak up the tons of fun we’ve identified for Westchester and Hudson Valley families! (We even have a list of fun activities just for Monday alone.)
For starters, the headliner of the holiday weekend is the Eastchester Columbus Day Carnival and Parade, featuring a big carnival, a parade, a meatball contest, fireworks and more.
There are all the big Halloween events recurring each weekend throughout October. And there’s more! Horseman's Hollow, for one, kicks off this weekend. Other seasonal fun can be had at the new Pumpkin Picking Autumn Celebration.
Climb aboard the “Cultural Trolley” to visit the numerous venues opening their doors for arts immersion at the free New Rochelle Arts Fest, or rock out when Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets take the stage.
Read on for all our top weekend picks—but don’t stop there! We’ve got fun happening all month long, so visit our Event Calendar, consult our guide for scenic autumn drives and check out our October GoList for our top picks!
