Looking for the best things to do in DC this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.
A long weekend brings extra opportunities for family fun. As can be expected in and around our nation’s capital, there are plenty of chances to celebrate Memorial Day with parades, concerts, and more. The National Memorial Day Concert on the Mall and the National Memorial Day Parade are just two of the many events happening this weekend to honor fallen soldiers.
Two museum exhibits open this weekend and run through Labor Day weekend: Curious George: Let's Get Curious! at the National Children's Museum, and Brick City at the National Building Museum, both of which are sure to captivate children all summer long.
This weekend also kicks off the season of summer festivals in the DC area, with fun options like ViVa Vienna! and the Hometown Holidays Music Fest in Rockville. And if you need a change of scenery, try one of our favorite summer day trips from DC for families.
