Worldwide Day of Play, Central Park Horse Show, and Luna Park's Halloween Harvest Kick-Off

Sept. 19-21

girl-picking-apples

Pick your own apples at a number of orchards in the NY metro area.

Nickelodeon's 11th annual Worldwide Day of Play is Sept. 20! The day is meant to encourage families to turn off the TV and—well, then what? How about these weekend ideas for getting active: play games and sports at Stepping Stones, offering free admission in honor of the day; boogie on down to a Barn Dance; run to raise funds for cancer research; or visit one of the many orchards in the NY metro area for pick-your-own apples! Who needs TV when there's so much to do?!


Does your child play soccer? You can take the whole team—for free!—to a New York Cosmos game, complete with refreshments, T-shirts, and a spot in the high-five line! Click here for more details.
