We have the guide on what family-friendly activities will be going on there. Other events of note: SchoolFest, the High School Fair, Deedle Deedle Dees at Carroll Park, and a couple of fun school fests.

Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to visit our music listings and events calendar to learn about more cool activities!
Through Sunday, September 30th
Yayoi Kusama at The Whitney Museum of American Art
Well known for her use of dense patterns of polka dots and nets, as well as her intense, large-scale environments, Yayoi Kusama works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance, and immersive installation. Born in Japan in 1929, Kusama came to the United States in 1957 and quickly found herself at the epicenter of the New York avant-garde. After achieving fame through groundbreaking exhibitions and art “happenings,” she returned to her native country in 1973 and is now one of Japan’s most prominent contemporary artists. This retrospective features works spanning Kusama’s career. The AMAZING Fireflies on the Water is being shown in the Museum’s Lobby Gallery in conjunction with the Yayoi Kusama retrospective. Timed tickets are required to view Fireflies on the Water and can only be reserved on the day of your visit at the admission desk. The show is being billed as “all ages”- if you are concerned, see photos of the exhibit here before going.
