The weather has turned colder than normal so here are some indoor weekend ideas in Bergen Co
unty for you and your family to enjoy:
Tenafly Street Fair and Craft Show
Do you love crafts? Love street fairs? Come to Tenafly because the entire downtown business district will be one big open event. Local stores will have amazing specials, tons of vendors, music, food, plenty of crafts and rides for the kids. This highly popular event will run from 11 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday.
Bergen County has several live theater groups and one of the best is The Players Guild of Leonia. I have gone to their productions and can tell you that this is a terrific local live theater group. They are doing Cabaret right now and tickets this weekend are still available. Performances are tonight and Saturday night at 8 pm and 3 pm on Sunday. Tickets are only $25 for most of us and $20 for students and seniors.
Tenafly Nature Center
Nature Centers in Bergen County usually have a full schedule. One of the best is the Tenafly Nature Center. This weekend their Apple Cider Making Event continues on Saturday afternoon. Because this is such a popular event it gets sold out quickly. However there are still spots available Saturday afternoon. This is a no miss family event; the weather will be warm enough by the afternoon too. If you like you can go hiking on their trails afterward.
There is another event going on at the Tenafly Nature Center this weekend for young children (age 3-7). Nature Story Time is on Saturday starting at 10 am for 30 minutes.
National Stamp Show
Do you collect stamps? One of the major stamp shows in the US is happening this weekend at the Meadowlands Hilton. NOJEX 2018 is one of the biggest philatelic events and there will be many outstanding award winning stamp collection exhibits. If you’ve never been to a stamp show go to this one. It’s rare to have a major national show in our own backyard. Bring the kids too. Stamp collecting is fun, doesn’t have to be expensive and teaches children so many positive things.
There is a huge aquatic show this weekend with an amazing floor show. If you are into aquariums and exotic fish, come to the Aquatic Experience at the Meadowlands Exposition Center (355 Plaza Dr, Secaucus NJ) starting today this weekend. Floor show tickets are $15 adults, $10 age 6-21 and under 5 free. If you have a youngster who is into aquariums, you might want to check out the Kids Aquarium Contest too.
You can also read my last week’s blog article for hayrides, pumpkin patches and apple picking. Weekend events in the Bergen County area happen every week of the year. I’ll always include events nearby too because locations such as Secaucus are literally on the border. Check back to find out what’s happening when you need ideas for fun.
