May is winding down, summer is on the horizon and there are lots of fun events happening this weekend throughout Westchester. To help you get ready, we've rustled up our top weekend picks including nature themed activities, art festivals, musical performances and more.
Of historical significance, this weekend marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and Lasdon Commemorates D-Day has planned a full day of displays, period music and dancing, memorabilia and more to commemorate the Normandy invasion. Also noteworthy this weekend is the annual Walk Now for Autism Speaks. There’s still time for you to sign up--you can even form a team!
Other weekend events include the White Plains Outdoor Arts Festival, which showcases the work of local artists while raising money for kids’ arts scholarships or you can shop for crafts, food and other items at the Tarrytown Craft, Food & Street Fair. And if you haven’t yet seen Lightscapes--the light-and-art installation of elements found in nature--this weekend is your last chance before the exhibit closes.
For unadulterated carnival fun, the ICS Carnival is a can’t-miss with full-fledged rides, carnival games (with decent prizes!), classic carnival fare including candy apples and cotton candy, sand art and more. This runs Thursday through Sunday.
