What to do this weekend: Event picks for Memorial Day weekend

fleetweeknewsletter Memorial Day weekend has arrived, and we don't need the dawn's early light to see summer on the horizon (in fact, we can practically taste the barbecue already). Kick-off the new season with one of these fab family events (or you could always hit a local beach !) Introduce your brood to a younger (and dare we say dreamier?) Tom Cruise on Friday with a free star-spangled screening of Top Gun at the Intrepid Air and Space Museum, or see real-life heroes during one of the many Fleet Week activities. Saturday, the Theater for the New City 's free Lower East Side Family Festival Day promises performances, grub and other fun. Row, row, row your boat (er, kayak) on Sunday with free rides at three Manhattan piers, and pay your respects to fallen servicemen at a ceremony on the Upper West Side Monday. See all free event picks for this weekend. Saturday check out BAM's DanceAfrica in Brooklyn, featuring all sorts of cultural activities. In Manhattan you can catch a family festival at The Cloisters in Washington Heights. It's also opening day at Coney Island's brand-new Luna Park . See all of our event picks for Saturday .
Swing by the Knitting Factory for a shape-themed Video Juice Box (be there and be square) Sunday, or boogie your red, white and blues away at the Little Club Heads dance party in Chelsea. See all of our event picks for Sunday.
Whatever you do this three-day weekend, have a fabulous time!
