  • Skagit Eagle Festival. Day trip alert! Throughout January, you can view wintering bald eagles around the Skagit River, with towns such as Concrete and Marblemount hosting story times, science activities and other kid fun.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. March. Inspire your kids and give them a taste of history by joining Seattle’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day March, beginning at Garfield High School. Keep an eye on the website for 2023 dates. 
  • Lunar New Year. The Year of the Rabbit rolls in Feb. 1, but one of the region’s main celebrations takes place outside the Wing Luke Museum of Asian Pacific American Experience on Saturday, Jan. 28. Plan for lion dances, firecrackers and more festive fun. (Another popular celebration, Tết in Seattle, takes place Jan. 14–15.)
