1. Peruse your children's educational options. Come meet representatives from more than 50 charter schools located in Brooklyn at the charter school fair this Saturday at 10 a.m. at 510 Waverly Ave. Hosted by the New York City Charter School Center, a non-profit organization providing support to NYC's charter school sector, parents can learn about the public school options available in their neighborhood.
2. Be entertained by the undead. Zombies: they're everywhere these days. From the Walking Dead to Warm Bodies, people can't seem to get enough of them, and if you're looking to get your living dead fix, catch All I Ever Really Wanted to Know I Learned From Being a Zombie, a local play by Jason Pizzarello. Suitable for kids and families, check out the play at 2 p.m. this Saturday at the Irondale Center at 85 S Oxford St. $5 per ticket.
3. Shop to a beat. The Gowanus Nite Market is open this Saturday from 7 p.m.-2 a.m., and featuring vendors, bands, shuffleboard and sponsored items by Film Biz Recycling. Come for the loot but stay for the party as a DJ will be spinning al night. 61 9th St., Loft C8.
4. Get in touch with your Irish roots. Even if you don't call Ireland home, everyone is Irish this weekend. Celebrate St. Patrick's day with a pint or a parade, or both! The Park Slope St. Patrick's Day Parade will "step-off" at 1 p.m. this Sunday and will run from Prospect Park West to 15th Street, then down 15th Street to 7th Avenue to Union Street, then to Prospect Park West back to the starting point. If you're busy this weekend, the following Sunday is the Bay Ridge Saint Patrick's Day Parade, which begins at 1 p.m.
5. Move your car. Alternate side parking rules are in effect today.
