Parent Map has info on three great events this weekend. Naturally, their focus is on children, but these are great activities for any age.
Music, music, everywhere at this longtime Memorial Day weekend trad performance blowout. Don't miss Monday -- six Kindiependent bands will be onstage starting at 11 a.m. (Recess Monkey alert!) and playing straight through to 3 p.m. Plus! Tons of activities for kids in the Folklife Commons. May 27-30: Friday-Monday, opens 11 a.m.
Take a sweet springtime ride aboard one of the Northwest Railway Museum's antique trains, through the Cascade foothills and to the top of Snoqualmie Falls. Anyone with a valid, current military ID card rides roundtrip for just $5. May 28-30: Saturday-Monday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Take 10-minute walk through old-growth forest down to the outdoor Kitsap Forest Theater, where The Mountaineers Players (who have been performing here since 1923) treat you to a classic musical. Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30, 2 p.m.; June 4-19, 2 p.m.
