Yes, it’s only March but that doesn’t mean we can’t get psyched for the upcoming warmer months ahead. One of our favorite Westchester family hot spots is Playland (check out our experience at Playland during the 4th and at the nearby Westchester Children’s Museum).
This season, Playland is kicking off its 90th season (whoa!) where families can enjoy all of its classic rides and attractions, including thrill rides, the popular Kiddyland for the younger set, a 1,200-foot beach on Long Island Sound and Olympic-size pool, and a vintage boardwalk.
A National Historic Landmark, Playland also boasts game arcades and games of skill, along with a picturesque mini-golf course and a lake that offers boat cruises. This season, you’ll also be able to check out strolling entertainers, costume characters, Kiddyland DJ and musical revues entertain visitors daily starting in mid-June, and special events and Big Band concerts on the boardwalk add to the fun on select summer evenings.
Some notable events you’ve got to check out this season:
- Playland’s 90th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, May 26 during Memorial Day weekend
- Their famous July 3rd and 4th Fireworks Spectacular
- The Latino Music Fest on Sunday, July 15
- Labor Day Weekend festivities
