Free & Fun Things to Do this Weekend for NYC Kids: Rockaway Beach Sandcastle Contest, Lincoln Center Family Day July 27-28
Sandcastles, carnival rides and great kids' concerts are all on the schedule this summer weekend. Head to Rockaway Beach and get creative at the annual sandcastle competition. Soak up some cool outdoor culture at Lincoln Center Out of Doors Family Day, including a FREE concert by Dan Zanes. Hit Staten Island's Greenbelt for the annual Children's Day Extravaganza at the Carousel for All Children. Or gasp at Quidam, the latest Cirque du Soleil extravaganza, which is playing at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
Looking ahead to next weekend, have you booked your tickets to our Mommy Poppins Family Cruise yet? Our inaugural Manhattan by Sail voyage in June was such a success, we just announced four additional New York Harbor sails on the Clipper City Tall Ship featuring enriching kids' activities and stunning views. Our first excursion, Stories and Tales of the Sea with master storyteller Bill Gordh, takes place next Sunday, August 4. Purchase your tickets today so you don't miss out.
