NYC Presidents Day Weekend: Ponycon, Intrepid Kids, V-Day, Lunar Parades Submitted by Stephanie Ogozalek on Wed, 02/10/2016 - 4:00pm Presidents Day weekend kicks off the weeklong February break for New York City public school kids (and a long weekend for many in preschool and daycare), and there's so much to do that we're (almost) wishing for a longer holiday! Five of our top February GoList picks take place this weekend, including the inaugural hands-on Play Fair consumer toy expo, Washington's Birthday Ball and a wide variety of science activities at the Intrepid and nature fun in NYC parks. The Lunar New Year festivities wrap up with the China Institute's fete in their new downtown location and the big parades in Chinatown, Sunset Park and Flushing. Plus, Sunday is Valentine's Day and we've rounded up lots of creative family activities around the city to honor the occasion. Or visit some of these DIY spots to craft handmade chocolate treats for your sweet, or stay in and make these adorable chocolate heart pops at home. Got to get some work in next week? Try one of these midwinter break camps for last-minute openings. These are just a few of the great things going on this Presidents Day weekend. All of our best bets are below. You can find lots of other options in our Event Calendar, our Winter Fun Guide and our list of 35 things to do over midwinter break. Read more.
