What to do this weekend

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Webster Hall is the location of the New York City Craft Beer Festival, just one of many events in the tri-state area taking place this weekend. 150 beers from around the world will be served. The festival will feature jazz music. Tickets start at $55.

Now from beer to tomatoes. The tomato battle is hitting the Big Apple for the first time on Saturday. Brave battlers will hurl tomatoes at each other. There will also be a costume contest. It costs $50.

Over in Queens, a tamer event happening on Sunday is SummerStage Kids. Presented by Disney, the event will feature dance performances, storytelling, puppetry and acrobats, and a celebration of Michael Jackson. This is taking place in Queensbridge Park and is free for adults and children.

But if you're looking for a cooler option, the City of Water day may be your best bet on Saturday. It's a free daylong celebration of the water surrounding the tri-state area. It takes place on Governors Island, Liberty State Park in New Jersey, and 25 other waterfront sites.

The event will hold the first ever cardboard kayak race and free boat tours.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio won't be reimbursing the city for personal travels that involve his security detail. "We have followed the conflict of interest board guidelines. I am following their guidelines to the letter," said de Blasio. The mayor has been heavily criticized for not paying the city back for travel expenses. Attention around the issue started last week when de Blasio was spotted not paying for a subway ride to Barclays Center while on official business.
