Egg Rolls, Egg Creams & Empanadas Festival

Celebrate the cultures of Jewish, Chinese and Puerto Rican communities at the crossroads of the Lower East Side and Chinatown. Only here can you and your little ones marvel at Chinese opera and acrobatics, listen to klezmer and dance to mambo music. Encourage your brood to look over the shoulders of a mah jongg pro, make bomba drum and practice Yiddish dancing. True to the festival’s name, kosher egg rolls, classic New York–style egg creams and fresh empanadas will also be in abundance. Don't forget to R.S.V.P. to the event! All ages.

Mermaid Parade

Mermaid Parade

Coney Island’s answer to Greenwich Village’s infamous Halloween parade might be a little risqué for some tiny ones, but plenty of families scope out King Neptune and Queen Mermaid as they presides over wacky floats, marching bands, drill teams, vintage cars and a dazzling array of scantily clad seafaring sirens. From W 21st St and Surf Ave to the Boardwalk at W 10th St, Coney Island, Brooklyn. All ages.
