There always are free and frugal family-friendly events to enjoy in NYC on weekends, and this last full weekend of February is no exception. As always, nothing on the NYCOTC list of weekend events and activities costs more than $15, because you can be a NYC cheapskate or NYC miser and still have fun in the greatest city in the world – if you know where to look, and we do. Unless otherwise noted, events are FREE.
Superbowl XLVIII museum exhibits – The Superbowl may be over, but not the football-themed museum exhibits. This is you last chance to see vintage football trading cards, let the kids have a chance to be a virtual referree, and more at three NYC museums. See the full NYCOTC posting here. Museum admissions apply.
Road to Sochi – Meet Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics gold medalists Joss Christensen (slopestyle skiing), Sage Kotsenburg (slopestyle snowboarding)
Gus Kenworthy (silver medal, slopestyle skiing) and other medalists of the current and past USA Team including ice skating medalist Sasha Cohen and test your winter sports skills at this special exhibit at Grand Central Terminal. See the full NYCOTC posting earlier this week for all the details.
Kid’s Week at the Intrepid Museum – Daily events and activities through the weekend. See the full NYCOTC posting earlier this week for all the details.
Easter Parade – See the classic 1948 MGM musical at the Mid-Manhattan Library at 2 p.m. Sunday. The plot doesn’t matter; what does is that Judy Garland, Fred Astaire, Ann Miller and Peter Lawford sing and dance to music composed by Irving Berlin. The Mid-Manhattan branch of the NYPL is across Fifth Avenue from the main branch with the lions out front.
New York Transit Museum Holiday Train Show at Grand Central, Centennial Edition – This is the final weekend for this extended show of miniature – not toy – trains – tooting around the tracks at this popular annual exhibit, open through next week. Full details here in a recent NYCOTC posting.
Have fun and be a NYC cheapskate with NYC on the Cheap.
