April Weekend Events to Go Ape For

Despite a rainy April welcome, there are plenty of indoor, family-friendly activities happening this weekend.

April showers will bring May flowers to CNY, and there will most certainly be some water droplets falling from the sky this weekend. However, there are plenty of weekend activities to look forward to, especially since they are indoors.

Celebrate the upcoming new month with plenty of family fun. Our Family Times Summer Fun & Camp Fair will be taking place, so check out what fun and fair weather programming — plus other vendors — will be offered in our region.

Animals roar in with PAW Patrol, the annual Shrine Circus and a fairgrounds dog show. It’s a weekend of New York comedy with Billy Crystal glowing under the spotlight, return of Impractical Jokers and a Wise Guys fundraiser at the Palace Theatre. Plus there is plenty of music, hockey and more.
