The following activities are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to free family fun in the Twin Cities this weekend! And the word “iceberg” just seems so wrong to use when it finally feels like spring out! Speaking of spring, there are lots of options this weekend for observing Earth Day with kids – and Saturday will be the perfect day for it. As always, please check our Family Fun Calendar for more weekend inspiration!
