Rain or shine, we’re ushering in the first weekend of spring with a healthy dose of family fun! On our radar: a sale that will leave you seeing double, a high-energy show designed for the whole fam, a craft-tastic day for lil’ engineers, a performance based on a Hans Christian Andersen tale, an annual celebration in Woodinville and a high-flying event at Springfree Trampoline. If that’s not excitement, join Snip-its Kids Salon as they celebrate the grand opening of their first salon in our area. In addition to lively entertainment by Eric Haines, there will be giveaways, photo opps and face painting.

Seattle Families of Multiples Sale
This gigantic bi-annual sale is not to be missed! Shop for gently used clothing for babies and kids (from preemie to pre-teen) as well as equipment from more than 60 families of multiples. If you haven’t been to a sale like this before, you’re in for a real treat. Psst… BYOB (bring your own bag or basket). Sat. Event details.

Kamikaze Fireflies 
We know this event is not exactly in Seattle, but it’s too good not to include. The Kamikaze Fireflies are a Los Angeles-based two-person show recently featured on America’s Got Talent. Whether spinning gigantic metal cubes, juggling, stilt-walking, performing daring stunts, breathing fire or breaking into contortionist backbends, their performances incite plenty of awe and LOL moments. Sat. Event details.

Maker Day: Upcycled Engineering
Take your crew to MOHAI to discover how recycled goods can be engineered into fun and creative toys! Tinker with Seattle ReCreative and their inventory of recycled materials to make robots, marble runs and more. Psst… make sure to try Ballard Reuse’s giant interactive maze game made from reclaimed building materials. Sat. Event details.


The Ugly Duckling
In this latest BYT performance, see the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale of a little duckling who doesn’t fit in with his family, but turns out to be much more than they ever imagined. The whole family will enjoy this story of friendship, bravery and self-confidence. Fri.-Sun. Event details.

Brightwater World Water Day Celebration
At this annual celebration, enjoy fun activities for all ages including art projects, science experiments, tours of our wastewater treatment plant and more. Plus, explore the world of water: how we impact it, how we clean it and what each of us can do to protect it. Sat. Event details.

Springfree Trampoline tgoma Game Night
Take your crew to Springfree Trampoline in Issaquah to compete for fun prizes while playing new tgoma games. Everyone will have fun jumping on Springfree Trampolines as well as noshing on light refreshments. Sat. Event details.
