Join FiDi Families this winter at the South Street Seaport Community Cube! DOWNTOWN’s very own Family & Lifestyle editor, Denise Courter, doubles as Founder/Publisher of FiDi Families and has been raving about the success of the event, “FiDi Families is excited to announce that we will be extending programming through the end of February! It will tentatively be Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Stay tuned for further information!” The Community Cube is conveniently located, warm, and overall a wonderful venue sponsored by Howard Hughes and New-York Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital. Partners involved in this programming include GoGo Squeeze, PBS Kids, Fandango, and many more. With all the support and free goodies, these programs have been a huge hit!
This is a great opportunity for parents to keep their children busy and entertained during for the first half of the week, which seems to be the busiest time for Downtown families. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays have all been packed with fun and educational programs. FiDi Families has had some of their favorite performers come, yoga, arts and crafts, movies, story time, and much more! These events are from 10am-12pm with an hour of free play at the end!
If you are looking for things to fill your weekend with, you can even spend your Sundays with Fidi Families at their Character Ice Skate. The skate is from 10am-12pm at the South Street Seaport Ice Rink! FiDi Families looks forward to the continuation of sharing indoor, free, and heated fun with Downtown families!
