Warmer weather has finally arrived and so has the season of spring festivals. This April, families can attend a country carnival in Queens, play old-school street games in Thomas Jefferson Park, watch Broadway performances at the Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair and celebrate the height of cherry blossom season in Brooklyn and on Randall's Island. Plus: There are plenty more spring festivals scheduled for May, including a mythical-beast-themed festival at the Cloisters, one of our favorite family attractions, and Spring Kids Fest, our spring event with the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
