Labor Day Picks!


It's a little "oh so quiet" in the city this weekend, but there are plenty of ways to stay amused for summer's last hurrah. On Saturday, families can check out The Sweet Spot Festival on the UWS - or head over to the Children's Potions & Planting Tea Party in Chelsea. On Sunday, little kids who are into boats will probably have fun checking the 22nd Annual Tugboat Race & Competition on Pier 84. Music lovers can try this concert with Uncle Eye Music in Central Park or Hot Peas & Butter at the Seaport. Finally, you might want to check out the NYC Unicycle Festival. It might sound a little quirky, but it's a good reason to visit Governors Island before they close for the season. Enjoy the long weekend everybody! See you back here on Tuesday. :)
