Looking for the best things to do in Philly this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your schedule.

This weekend is packed with carnivals, spring fests, and even a palooza just for the tiniest festival-goers. Toddle on over to the Barnes Foundation for the very first Toddlerpalooza, an outdoor, free extravaganza designed especially for the littlest artists and their grown-ups. Bigger kids will love the Thrill Park Carnival in its final days at the Expo Center. Mister John hosts Drag Storytime this weekend, and neighborhood spring fests start to take over the burbs, including the Friends School Haverford Spring Fair. It's also Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so head to the Franklin Institute for a day of performances and activities dedicated to the AAPI community.
