Tulip Festival

Critics' pick

Every year during spring, the West Side Community Garden overflows with tulips, and this year there are nearly 12,000. You can also see spring flowers and blossoming cherry trees. If you have questions about what you see, have a chat with the volunteers on the grounds. Saturdays during the show, Tom Thies, the chief horticulturist, gives an educational tour and garden lesson.

Brooklyn Zine Fest

Critics' pick

The fourth annual Brooklyn Zine Fest returns to grant wings to more than 150 talented but lesser-known writers, artists and publishers. Last year’s festival drew a crowd of more than 2,700 to browse the exhibitors' self-published magazines and attend panel discussions. This year's highlights include a student section on the second day that showcases budding zine stars and various topics like politics, photography, poetry and pop culture. On opening day from 1 to 3pm, a panel discussion helps aspiring zine makers find ideas and collaborators. Did you know that Roger Ebert fell in love with words because of his obsession with zines? So think of this festival as a way to start your creative journey!

What have you done with this feature? It used to be a readable roundup. Now it's just an assortment of links that I have to open in a million different tabs. As someone who refers to these weekend roundups quite a bit, I respectfully request that you bring back the old format.
