We all so deserved the unbelievably good weather today. I hope that you were able to spend it outside. We had a mostly-relaxing day that involved slip-and-sliding for the kids and sangria for me. Excellent. And the delightful thing about a three-day weekend, as Cute W always points out, is that it’s followed by a four-day week. Here’s what I’ve found for this week:
Tuesday, May 31st:
- Hey, Let’s Look for Signs of Turtles at 8:45 am at Moreau Lake. They say to call for reservations, but how busy do you think they’ll be so early?
Wednesday, June 1st:
- Preschoolers can be World Travelers at 1:30 pm at the Children’s Museum at Saratoga. It’s free with admission, but please pre-register.
Thursday, June 2nd:
- Take a walk with some nature lovers at 9:45 am at Hollyhock Hollow Sanctuary.
- Jazz on Jay in Schenectady kicks off today at noon.
- It’s Alive at Five in downtown Albany at 5 pm–does anyone go to this series regularly? One commenter suggested this might be a bit too much of a rowdy drinking scene for families to enjoy–thoughts anybody?
- At 6:30 pm it’s Children’s Circle at the Bethlehem Public Library, a story hour designed with special-needs children in mind.
Friday, June 3rd:
- It’s about an hour’s drive, but the weekend-long Cambridge Valley Balloon Festival kicks off today.
- At noon, go on a Caterpillar Crawl for the First Friday Hike at Albany Pine Bush. $3/person, $5/family; register online.
- Clifton Park is organizing a free Nature Walk at its new Stony Creek Park at 1 pm.
- The Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library has a buy one, get one free Scholastic Book Sale from 2-5 pm today as well as during the weekend.
- It’s First Friday Albany from 5-9 pm.
- St. Basil’s in Troy has a Greek Festival all weekend, starting with 5-9 pm today.
- It’s Ballston Spa First Friday from 6-9 pm.
- At the Ghent Playhouse, they’re performing You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown at 8 pm tonight and through the weekend. $15/adults, $8/children 12 and under.
