Instead of getting Mom a bouquet of roses, why not treat her to the entire garden? The New York Botanical Garden is celebrating the holiday with its Mother’s Day Weekend Garden Party. Families can participate in outdoor games like croquet and bean bag toss, sign ups tours around the garden, enjoy live entertainment, kid-friendly science performances and food and drinks from local food truck vendors. Sunday’s Mother’s Day Brunch (Sun 14, 11am–4:30pm) will offer up fresh pastries, artisanal cheese and other items served in the Garden Terrace Room. All ages.
