Every weekend there’s always a ton of events going on in Westchester County and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, there are too many events to write about and I’m lucky if our family can attend even one event. However, I’m hoping to showcase some highlight events that you may want to try to attend. Here’s a quick look at some of the family fun and food events taking place in Westchester County and the surrounding area this weekend.
As always, please check with the website/venue for the most up-to-date information.
