The best free things to do with kids

CityParks PuppetMobile

CityParks Puppetmobile is on a mission to bring awesome puppet shows to kids all over the city, and with so many free performances happening this season, it'll be hard to miss! You'll find more than 100 free puppet performances in the city's parks, playgrounds and recreation centers; this year's show is Cinderella Samba. Plot: "The CityParks PuppetMobile production sets the timeless tale in the lush landscape of Brazil, where, thanks to the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella attends Rio de Janeiro's biggest Carnaval gala and dances the samba with Prince Paulo himself. After Cinderella is forced to flee the gala just before midnight, the prince sets out to find the mystery woman who stole his heart, in hopes of marrying her." See the CityParks PuppetMobile website for more info on exact locations! All ages.
