It won’t be hard to have a roaring good time this weekend since there will be lifelike dinos on display at the Armory. If you have smaller tots in your brood (who might not get the whole “life-like” part), check out a youth ballet concert, get schooled at the National Math Festival, or get together with other families to celebrate Earth Day.
