CNY Events for a Lovely Weekend

Date-focused CNY events in and around town offer pre-Valentine’s Day fun.

Oh, upstate New York, how do we love thee? Let us count the CNY events taking place this weekend. Valentine’s Day is Tuesday, and you should celebrate boldly with all that is good in our backyards.

Laugh with some local and national comedic talent, work up some sweat with a romp or run in the sheets of fallen snow, take in an opera or a play, look at cute animals opening gifts, go to a game or enjoy a countless number of other options.

We’re here to give you a taste of dark chocolate-covered delights to be savored.
