This is the last long weekend together before school starts. A county fair with rides and BMX demonstrations, a unicycle festival and colorful, costumed parade events are fun ways to burn off energy before settling back into the routine of school.
Bodies in motion is the theme of the West Indian American Day Parade and its events in Brooklyn, and the three-day Unicycle Festival that wheels to Coney Island, Governors Island and Grant’s Tomb in Manhattan.
On Museum Mile (Fifth Avenue), the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of the City of New York are both open for the holiday.
Take your pick of fun, take in the sights or just take a rest. At least deciding what to do won’t be hard work.
