Event Picks, April 2009
Spring celebration. The Moonpaper Tent’s magical spring forest, filled with birds, animals and fairies, draws kids into an interactive magic-egg hunt.

Dance chance. Show off your moves at Seattle Storm home games at KeyArena this year! Dancers ages 5–15 are invited this month to audition for the 2009 Seattle Storm Dance Troupe. A variety of dance experience — including jazz and hip-hop — is recommended, and dancers should bring a current, nonreturnable photo with them. To be considered, attend all three auditions: Tuesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 16, 6:30-9:30 p.m. (The Furtado Center, 490 Fifth Ave. N., Seattle) and Saturday, April 18, noon–3 p.m. (Alderwood Mall food court, 3000 184th St. S.W., Lynnwood). To register, visit WNBA/Storm.
Earth angels. Campfire USA, Snohomish County Council’s Camp Killoqua, located about 20 miles northwest of Everett, hosts an Earth Day bash on April 18. Bring a picnic and spend the day at the 185-acre camp, doing hands-on activities that’ll get you a little closer to understanding how to care for the land and the critters who call it home. You don’t have to register, but call to get directions: 425-258-5437. 10 a.m.–2 p.m. Free. All ages.
