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 ](http://www.newyorkfamily.com/newyork/event-55950-shuttle-enterprise-flight-over-new-york-city.html) [Enterprise](http://www.newyorkfamily.com/newyork/event-55950-shuttle-enterprise-flight-over-new-york-city.html) 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](http://www.newyorkfamily.com/newyork/event-55729-the-new-york-childrens-theater-presents-tscheme-of-the-super-bulliest.html), best for ages six and up.

Youth Theater's new musical, [Up To You](http://www.newyorkfamily.com/newyork/blog-2858-its-up-to-you.html), has an important message for ages five and up (but is also a lot of fun!).
