President's Day is Monday, 2/20/17.  You and your little patriots can enjoy all the fun of being a child for one extra day this weekend.  Let's look north of us - Seattle.  They have no shortage of ways to fill all three days of the weekend with fun for all!  Have a great long weekend...

1.  Test your knowledge of Presidential trivia and other history facts at a patriotic-themed day at the Seattle Children's Museum.

2.  Take advantage of free entrance to our state's national parks and go exploring or sledding.

3.  Uncover the rich cultural diversity of food in the Pacific Northwest with MOHAI and Festal.  (Cooking demo's, dance performances, crafts)

4.  Explore the word in miniature at the largest model show in the Northwest.  See hundreds of scaled models and build your own model to take home.

5.  Watch as divers swim with the gigantic octopus in Window on Washington Waters exhibit during Octopus Week at the Seattle Aquarium.

6.  Break a sweat with your little ones as you run, walk or job the President's Day Weekend Run.

7.  Kids of all ages love to watch the world-famous Globetrotters' ball-handling skills in their latest world tour.

8.  Get up close and personal with Northwest Trek's small animals, make arts/crafts and enjoy trailside encounters and tram tours.  Kids 12 and under free during this 3-day event.
