todotodaylist.jpgThis weekend has so many fun events, it’s almost a shame that they all fall on the same days and you can’t do them all. We’ve put together some great itineraries to please all types of families. Check May 1 and May 2 listings for all details:

Saturday, May 1
11 am - Start the weekend at the theater and enjoy Westminster Arts Center’s production of Alice in Wonderland.

2 pm - Bring all that inspiration to the Montclair Public Library’s Young Writer’s Open Mic and have your kids perform an original story, poem or essay for the crowd.
Sunday, May 2
11 am - Bring the kids to get their faces painted at Aunt Jean’s Toys & Treats.
