New York Family's highlight reel for what to do this weekend By Meghan Gearino I know we say it all the time, but this weekend we mean it with yell-it-from-our-walk-ups fervor. IT IS GREAT TO LIVE IN NEW YORK! Need evidence? The list below-which sports an eclectic batch of family festivals celebrating cherry blossoms, kindie music (that's kid plus indie) and the Tribeca Film Festival-should keep you busy. FRIDAY Witness history as the [space shuttle ]( [Enterprise]( swoops over NYC for the very last time. Look for it tomorrow morning around the Statue of Liberty and The Intrepid, where the craft will temporarily reside come summertime. FRIDAY-SATURDAY Help Princess Dodgeballstop a band of bullies from terrorizing her school when The New York Children's Theater Festival presents [Scheme of the Super Bullies](, best for ages six and up. FRIDAY-SUNDAY A special 35-minute show just for your toddler-the New Victory Theater's interactive [Plop!]( based on Ursula Dubosarsky's popular picture book about two problem-solving rabbits. Discovery Times Square opens their doors for [Terracotta Warriors]( this weekend. Kids of all ages can peruse life-size ancient artifacts and Chinese warriors at this new exhibit. SATURDAY-SUNDAY Shining a spotlight on bulliesin the midst of a student election, TADA! Youth Theater's new musical, [Up To You](, has an important message for ages five and up (but is also a lot of fun!). Friday sold out quickly, so be sure to get your tickets in advance.
