November 9-11 U.S. Gymnastics Champions, Veterans Day Parade, Wreck-It Ralph, and the Rockettes
It was heartening to see the various places that remained open (many offering free admission and impromptu kids' programming) in the aftermath of the storm to give kids a place to play, a space where things could be as "normal" as possible. This weekend, they continue to serve the kids in the community with fun and exciting activities, while a handful of others will honor Veterans Day to teach the next generation about the heroic acts of generations past, including at the Brooklyn Children's Museum's Veterans Day Medals. Plus join more than 20,000 people at the 93rd Annual NYC Veterans Day Parade for floats, military vehicles and veterans and military service members of all eras.

Be a friend to the Great Outdoors by helping to clean up Prospect Park's 250+ acres of forest. Next, head to the Fall Foliage Fest to learn why leaves change colors in the fall.
