As the summer draws to an end, we are reflecting on what a fantastic summer we have had and are looking forward to what the next few months will bring. Since the launch of New York Loves Kids in May, we have shared over 5,000 family friendly events that have been happening all over the City and we hope that your summer has been amazing!
This weekend is jam-packed full of great things to do – you can catch the Wild Forest – A Lego Safari at Bronx Zoo before it ends, or enjoy some one wheel fun at the NYC Unicycle Festival on Governors Island. Or why not have a play at the Science Playground at the New York Hall of Science where the exhibits include a giant lever, Archimedes screw and water play area, wind pipes, a climbing net, slides, sand boxes and metal drums.
Please remember that some places close for Labor Day so always check with the venue before setting off.
Whatever you plan to do this weekend, we wish you lots of fun and Happy Labor Day!
