Weekend Planner: Fun Family Events In NYC (February 27-March 1)

This weekend features some exciting family fests: Friday marks the opening of the New York International Children’s Film Festival, the largest film fest for teens and children and North America, while the Kids Food Festival takes over Bryant Park on Saturday and Sunday, featuring culinary stars such as Gail Simmons of “Top Chef” and Daniel Holzman of The Meatball Shop. Those looking for some theatrics can catch the opening of “The Light Princess” at the New Victory Theater, or Teater Tre’s lighthearted and colorful “Blocks” at BAM. Enjoy!
