A fall Shakespeare in the Park. Plus, make-your-own Halloween decorations.
When the air turns cooler, we all look for an excuse to spend time outdoors. Here are five rocking events that might just make your weekend.
Plenty to Do in Pleasantville
Head to Pace University this weekend for one last Shakespeare in the Park, only this one is *not* to be missed. On Saturday, September 29 at 4pm and Sunday, September 30 at 3pm, one of the world’s “most renowned Shakespeare companies” will be performing Hamlet on an open-air stage next to the lake at Pace’s Pleasantville campus. The production is the same show that ran at London’s Globe theater in 2011, and it’s extremely rare to find a London-based show in Westchester; it will be in NYC the following week. The show is entirely FREE. Bring a blanket, pack a picnic and head to Pace, rain or shine. Pace University, 861 Bedford Road, Pleasantville; see the flyer here.
There’s nothing better than some bargain shopping on a crisp fall day. The Hudson Chorale Society is holding their annual Giant Tag Sale this Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29 from 9am to 4pm, also in Pleasantville. I’ve never been, but I’ve heard that you can score some major deals on toys, children’s books, furniture, small appliances, jewelry, art, etc. Maybe head to the tag sale, have lunch up the road at Le Jardin de Roi in Chappaqua (brie burger!), and then take the kiddies to Shakespeare in the Park at Pace. Fun! Tag sale is located at 107 Bedford Road, Pleasantville (corner of Manville Road and Route 117). [...]
What could be more summery than an outdoor concert, a neighborhood carnival and a farmers market on an actual farm?
Summer is still in full swing this weekend with outdoor concerts, farmers markets, a fancy tea party for girls (and their dolls) plus a fun filled family day in Port Chester. Check out our calendar for the complete weekend guide and see below for a few highlights.

Looking for a unique way to celebrate your child's birthday -- head to the farm.
You know you’ve been to too many birthday parties when you quietly groan at the site of yet another cake. When we got an invitation for a party at Muscoot Farm in Katonah, I knew this party would be different. The morning of the party, the sky was threatening rain, so we put on our rain boots and arrived at the farm in a steady drizzle.
Here’s the thing about Muscoot Farm birthday parties: They’re fun rain or shine.
It also helps when the two moms hosting the party are Scarsdale elementary school teachers. To say these ladies are good with kids is an understatement. I didn’t need to worry about a little ol’ rain. We were greeted by some friendly “big kids ” who led us to a charming white barn. There we had a large room to ourselves with tables set up for the kids to color.
