Things to Do in Bergen County Week of July 6

Weekly Events  / 

We rounded up the best things to do in Bergen County and beyond on our weekend PLAYlist!

Sponsored Post: Mondays don’t have the best reputation, but Palisades Center is giving the maligned weekday something to be proud of now that its Munchkin Monday Summer Concert Series has returned, offering free, kid-focused musical shows two Monday afternoons a month. Each will feature some of the area’s most popular children’s performers ranging in style from country to rock as well as popular children’s hits. (You know what they are.) This month, the events – which will also include prizes and treats for your mini crooners – are set to take place on July 10 and 24 at 11am in the East Court on Level 1 near H&M and Uniqlo ... which means you can get your shopping on after you’re done singing along. (Get your Munchkin Monday VIP card here. Munchkin Monday Summer Concert Series, Palisades Center, 1000 Palisades Center Drive, West Nyack, New York)
