Shoreline Families

May 17-19 Weekend Outlook | Get Outside or Stay Indoors. Either Way, We've Got You Covered!

May 16, 2019 04:35PM ● By Rachel Belfield
While this weekend's weather doesn't look as glorious as last, there are bound to be breaks in the showers, and hardy PNW souls don't usually mind getting damp. So check out our inside-and-out guide to the upcoming weekend in and around Shoreline with kids.


A Unique Music and Dance Experience Friday and Saturday

While this event's tickets cost a bit more than what we tend to consider "low cost" for Shoreline Families, the opportunity to experience dance, music, and culture from North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia led us to break our own rules and share this event, which will be held at nearby North Seattle College.
