Things to do in and around town this Memorial Day weekend
This Memorial Day, thankfully, is looking a lot different from the last one. About half of all Americans are now fully vaccinated. Gathering with family and friends for a BBQ is not the dire threat it was a year ago. And while the forecast doesn’t look very summery, there are still plenty of ways to unwind and enjoy a few carefree days around our area. Read on for some ideas…
Shop till you drop at the Stormville Flea Market
If you love whiling away a morning or afternoon browsing antiques, arts and crafts, the Stormville Flea is for you. This massive market located at the Stormville Airport has everything from vintage dishes and glassware to retro jewelry, toys, home décor, rugs, food vendors and more.
Saturday and Sunday, May 29 and 30 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, rain or shine
Take in a Minor League baseball game
The Hudson Valley Renegades, a New York Yankees High-A affiliate based in Fishkill, play at home on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Pack up the family (and some sweatshirts) and head over to Dutchess Stadium to watch the ‘Gades take on the Jersey Shore Blueclaws.
Saturday, May 29, 6:05 p.m. and Sunday, May 30, 4:35 p.m.
Have an extreme indoor adventure
Xtreme Play, a new indoor adventure park in Danbury, is the perfect place to stay warm, dry and active on a cold and rainy weekend. The facility is an adrenaline junkie dream, with a high ropes course, warrior course, laser tag, rock climbing wall, bumper cars, a virtual reality arena, mini bowling and an arcade. Let the kids burn off some steam before you unwind for the rest of the day.
Sunday, May 30 12:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Catch a flick at the Prospector Theater in Ridgefield
