1. Head north to Concrete to observe hundreds of wintering eagles on the Skagit and enjoy the many other events of the annual Skagit Eagle Festival.  (Sat. and Sun.)

2. Celebrate Groundfrog Day in Snohomish: entertainment, games and a local bullfrog that will give a "frogcast." (Sat.)

3. Welcome the Year of the Dragon with a free Lunar New Year festival at Hing Hay Park in Seattle's International District. (Sat.)

5. Planes + music = free family fun, right? Find out on Saturday by attending the launch of a unique initiative at SeaTac Airport and rocking with Recess Monkey. (Sat.)

6. Explore aquatic life forms by night with the help of a guided naturalist at Tacoma Nature Center's Pier Peer event (registration required).  (Sat.)

7. Attend a musical -- The Frog Prince, Little Women, Singin' in the Rain and Hairspray all open this weekend! Or book tickets for next weekend.
