The Nightingale – Pay-What-You Can PerformanceSteppingstone Theatre, 55 Victoria Street North, Saint Paul, MN 55104 Saturday, April 26, 2014; 3:00 p.m.
The Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies is performing a Family Concert of American composers on Saturday. This interactive and educational concert is geared toward children ages 6 to 12. To keep with our spring theme, they will feature Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copeland.
I don’t have a spring connection for this except that April is Autism Awareness Month and it’s also spring. If you have a child who finds most parties too stimulating. This party is geared for kids who like things a bit more organized and predictable. Join local author Nancy Carlson as she reads from her book, Armond Goes to a Party: A Book About Asperger’s and Friendship.
Back again this year, Party for the Planet with Como Park. It’s a nice excuse to get to the zoo in spring and maybe you’ll come home with some new ideas for helping the planet as a family.
25th Annual Kiwanis Kite Fly Louisiana Oaks Park, 3500 Louisiana Ave. S., St. Louis Park, MN Saturday, April 26, 2014; noon – 4:00 p.m.
We got a kite from the Easter bunny and then there was no wind by us on Sunday. This weekend (weather permitting) the Minnesota Kite Socieity will be in St. Louis Park. Families are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch and bring lawn chairs or bring your own kite to fly. There will also be free kites for kids while supplies last. The forecast has been back and forth for Saturday, but as I publish this, the odds look good. However, if the weather doesn’t cooperate, the make-up date is set for May 24th.
