Take a cue from Pinkalicious and indulge in the things you love the most this weekend (Pinkalicious loves everything pink). Into nature? Learn about the life cycle of a salmon. Mad about movies? Check out one of the many outdoor films. Adore the outdoors? Roll along in a family bike ride. There’s something for every aficionado–big and small.

When Pinkalicious indulgences in pink cupcakes, she lands in the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe. Find out if she can figure a way out of this pinkish predicament. Fri.-Sat. Event


By the Seashore
By the Seashore takes us on a magical journey to a place children love to visit–the beach! From birds and fish, to sand and water, and everything in-between, young audience members are invited to explore all the amazing things we find on the shore, in the ocean, and in the sky (with no need for wings or scuba gear!). Using an imaginative mix of puppetry, movement, and sound, this sensory-filled production is specifically designed for babies and young toddlers. Fri.-SunEvent


Parent Child Bike Rides on the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail
Join Recess Outings to roll along the river and explore southeast and southwest D.C. This is a great ride for parents with children.
