These Are the Best Things to Do in Westchester This Week


We round up the best activities of the week for Westchester residents, including a Zumba class in Yonkers and animal meet and greet in Mount Kisco.

Westchester has always been home to loads of fun things to do. Whether you’re looking for an entertaining weeknight activity or something to do once your day off rolls around, we’ve got your shortlist for must-hit plans to kick off the week.

Zumba Class

Will Library, Yonkers & Zoom
August 9, 6-7 p.m.

Make your workout more fun by joining this free Zumba class. It’s open to teens (12-18) and adults (18+), and you can register on the library’s website. This event takes place at the outside lower lobby. If you can’t make it in person, you can join via Zoom.

Read to Rover

Mount Kisco Public Library, Mount Kisco
August 11 & 18, 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Head over to Mount Kisco Public Library on Thursday evening to read a book to Rover. Rumor has it that Rover, a therapy dog, is the best listener! This event is for children over five years old and is located downstairs in the kids’ program room.

Mommy and Me: Animal Kingdom

Westmoreland Sanctuary, Mount Kisco 
August 12, 10-11:30 a.m.

Who wouldn’t want to make friends with a new animal every week? On Friday mornings, parents and kids can head over to Westmoreland Sanctuary to hang out with a rabbit, turtle, and more. The meet and greet lasts 45 minutes and is followed by 45 minutes of play time for the kids. This is not a drop-off program, so children must be accompanied by an adult the whole time. You can purchase tickets online, but if you forget, don’t worry; walk-ins are always welcome.

Summer Fridays

Hudson River Museum, Yonkers
August 12, 5-7 p.m.

The Hudson River Museum welcomes you with a pay-what-you-wish admission on Fridays. This admission allows you to experience the current exhibitions, view a free planetarium show at 6 p.m., and play games in the courtyard. All ages are welcome!

Food Truck Fridays

56 Westchester Ave, Pound Ridge
August 12 & September 9, 5-9 p.m.

If you’re looking for a fun evening full of grub and games, this is for you. Seven food trucks will be lined up waiting for you to order. You have the choice of hot dogs, poke bowls, waffles, barbecue, and more. There will also be live music by Dave Goldberg and Badger Scratch. Entry is free for this event.
