Weekend family fun on Long Island: 'Cinderella Kids,' family picnic and more
Looking for things to do with the kids this weekend? From "Cinderella Kids" and "Coraline" to a family picnic, crafts and more, there is plenty happening on Long Island. Here are my top five picks for family-friendly activities during the weekend:
Magic in the Walled Garden at Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve (25 Lloyd Harbor Rd., Lloyd Neck). Chris Homer performs a private show for children and adults, where he focuses on charity events and gives much of his time to the less fortunate on Saturday, at 10 a.m. Bring your own seating; stay after the show for a walk or picnic. Price: Free.
"Disney's Cinderella Kids" at Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (71 E. Main St., Patchogue). The classic fairy tale comes to life on stage, featuring all your favorite characters on Friday at 1 p.m. and Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Price: $12-$18.
Cinema for Kids: "Coraline" at Cinema Arts Centre (423 Park Ave., Huntington). Watch this PG-rated animated thriller featuring the voices of Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, and John Hodgman on Sunday, at noon. Price: $11, $5 for children under 12.
The Great Out'Smores at Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center (134 Cove Rd., Oyster Bay). Kids ages 8 and older will pitch tents, search for critters, play games and round out the evening with songs and marshmallows around a campfire on Friday, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Price: $25 per child; preregistration is required.
Old-Fashioned Family Picnic at Northport Village Park (Main Street, Northport). On Sunday, from 1 to 3 p.m., families can enjoy cold beverages and desserts, crafts and games. The picnic will take place near the gazebo. Price: $10.
