maple sugaringIt’s midweek.  You’re thinking of things to do this weekend in Bergen County as a result.  Let me help you with a few suggestions.  While I realize it’s February, the weather this weekend promises to be spectacular.  So let’s mix outdoor and indoor options.

Maple Sugaring

It’s that time of year again for maple sugaring at the Tenafly Nature Center.  Sessions are held every Sunday in February and March most often at 12:30, 2 and 3:30 pm.  Learn all about how maple trees are tapped to gather their sap.  Warm clothes are a must because part of the time you’ll be outside.  Going to see an actual maple tree tap is part of the program.  So is watching how the sap is boiled down to delicious maple syrup.

This is fun for adults and children alike but space is limited so make your reservations ASAP.  Maple sugaring is a very popular program.a lion in winter

The Lion in Winter

The Bergen County Players production of the Lion in Winter is still on this weekend.  This is an award winning play that ran on Broadway for a very long time.  You won’t want to miss it.

I love this theater group.  They put on terrific productions.  Parking is free (on the street) and you can’t beat the ticket prices.  It’s $22 on Friday and Saturday and $18 on Sunday.

Performances are held at 8 pm on Friday and Saturday while it’s 2 pm on Sunday.  Additionally BCP reserves seats for people with disabilities too.  Therefore call them in advance if you need this help.  The Bergen County Players is located in the old firehouse (just refurbished) at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell NJ  You can call them at 201-261-4200

Celebrate George Washington’s Birthday this Sunday at historic New Bridge Landing in River Edge NJ from 1-5 pm.  What a spectacular event this is!  Plan to stay a few hours because there is so much going on.

A special musical and dance program at the Steuben House is held at 1:30 and 3:30  Children are taught to make a tri-corner hat and have fun with a scavenger hunt.  Watch food being cooked just like Martha did for George.  Get to meet Revolutionary soldiers and say hello to General Washington and Martha.

Because this is so well done and very authentic, don’t miss it.  It’s only on this Sunday afternoon after all.  Bring yourself and your family to this very special event that takes you back to the Revolutionary era.  Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for students.  Historic New Bridge Landing is located at 1201 Main St in River Edge NJ  Parking is free.

While I try to highlight events that are special, if you know of something I should add just text or call me at 201-741-8490.
