This weekend, we’re springing forward (don’t forget to set your clocks ahead!) with lots of family fun. For starters, we have a family outing to welcome spring, an educational rock concert, and a musical performance with lots of dancing and swords! We also have a meet up just for dads, a concert with lots of goofy tunes, and a must-see StoryBook Theatre performance. If bicycling is one of your family’s fav sports, be sure to check out the Seattle Bicycle Expo. In addition to more than 250 bicycle vendors, enjoy a super-fun Kids Zone, a performance arena, and two stages of bicycle entertainment! And the Seattle Children’s Chorus’ “Songs of the Heart” concert takes a walk down memory lane as each choir presents their best-loved choral pieces from years past.

Seattle. $5. Tickets required. All ages. Event details.
