Playland Opens Saturday...Ready, Set, Go

Everything you need to know about the Saturday, May 12 opening of Playland...

Playland! The Jewel of Westchester County is just days away from its 84th season of fun rides, games and beachside fun. Opening day this Saturday, May 12 will include a parade and a day filled with music and activities for the entire family at a discounted admission price. 

What could be better than a day near the beach riding the Dragon Coaster, eating cotton candy, listening to music...it's the stuff of great memories.
