This Weekend

We’ve got a tremendously busy weekend coming up.  Here’s what I’ve found:

All Weekend:

Evening of Friday, September 10th:

  • Cavanaugh & Kavanaugh will be playing at 5 pm at the Delaware Branch Library as part of the Acoustic Sidewalk Series.
  • In North Greenbush, the Community Fair by the Kiwanis Club begins at 5 pm today and continues on Saturday.  Music, food, and kids’ games.

Saturday, September 11th:

Sunday, September 12th:

  • From 10 am to 5 pm it’s the Towne Bowling Academy Community Day in Rotterdam.  Free bowling, shoe rental, food, face painting.
  • At the Albany Pine Bush, you can learn about Legends and Lore of the Pine Bush at 10:30 am, a naturalist tour at 11:30 or the basic tour at 1 pm.
  • It’s an Old Fashioned Sunday at the Pruyn House in Newtonville from noon to 4 pm.  It’s free, with music, storytelling, magicians, pony rides, and more.
  • From 12 to 4:30 pm, there’s an Eid Carnival at AnNur Islamic School in Schenectady.  Bouncy bounce, games, foods, crafts.  Tickets are $2/kids 4-13, $3/folks 14+, or $10/family, and include snack foods for the kids.  If you’ve had to have conversations with your kids lately about nutjobs trying to burn Qurans, what better follow-up than to go to a nice neighborhood event where friendly Muslims will be handing out cotton candy?
  • Time Travel through Lillian’s Attic in the Children’s Museum at Saratoga from 1 to 2 pm.  This is a chance to see the newly renovated portion of the museum.
  • It’s the Uncle Sam Parade and Celebration in Troy.  The parade’s at 1 pm, there are fireworks at 8 pm, and in between there will be plenty of music, games, and food.
  • They’re showing The Adventures of Robin Hood at 2 pm at the main Albany Library.
