This Weekend

Travel Back in Time

The Rye Historical Society invites you to the Square House Museum on Saturday, where festive guided tours will be offered between 1 and 3. You’ll learn how the Haviland family, which once owned the tavern, celebrated the holiday season.  

Entry is free but donations will be gratefully accepted. The tours are geared for adults and children ages 10 and up.

Celebrating the Season

The Rye Free Reading Room invites all ages to a Winter Open House on Saturday from 2 to 4. Enjoy music, crafts, cookie decorating, and more in this warm, inviting, and wonderful historic landmark. 

Fabulous Fun for the Young

Count the blessings of the annual Children’s Holiday Party at Wainwright House. Cookie decorating with Chef Staci. Photos and a fireside chat with Santa. Sing-a-long with elves. Festive yoga with Lexy. Crafts and play with Miss Lisa. Bingo with prizes. Holiday books read aloud.

Don’t miss the festivities on Sunday from 12 to 3. No charge for members, $15 for non-members.

Ahoy, Moviegoers

The Rye YMCA invites families to an unusual winter afternoon — in the Pa Cope Pool, Sunday from 3 to 5. Everyone remembers drive-in theaters, but dive-in? Bring your own standard-size float and watch “The Grinch.” Dr. Seuss’ memorable grump doesn’t steal Christmas and he may even win a few hearts.

The fee is $5 per child, $15 for ages 18 and older. Proceeds from the event will go to the Y Cares Annual Campaign.

Family Fun

Have Yourself an Early Little New Year’s

Join the daytime celebration at the Westchester Children’s Museum on December 31 from 10 to 5. Enjoy music and movement, story time, and museum minis.

All programs are drop-in and included with Museum membership or admission. For details, visit

Wonders Never Cease

Accompany your not-yet-walking child on a multi-sensory adventure on Thursday mornings, from 9:15-10, at Wainwright House, starting Jan. 11.
