5 Fun and Family-Friendly things to do this February weekend

Hello, weekend! And a three-day weekend, at that. This weekend’s top 5 events are brought to you by some of Cincinnati’s best players — the Children’s Theatre, Taft Museum and Cincinnati Zoo — and are sure to make for some extra-special time with your crew.

Here are 5 fun and family-friendly things to do this February weekend:

Madagascar: A Musical Adventure
Feb. 16-18 at the Taft Theatre
This Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati production is utterly delightful. Based on the DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure follows all of your kids’ favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar. Move it, move it to the Taft this weekend for this standout show! {Check out our review here!}

Linton Peanut Butter & Jam: Hit It!

Third Sunday Funday: Celebrate Tiffany

Meet some creatures that inspired works in the Tiffany show during a visit from Cool Critters at 3 pm. FREE.

Half-Price Days at the Cincinnati Zoo
Daily through March 9
The forecast isn’t looking too shabby this weekend, making it the perfect time to take advantage of the Zoo’s Half-Price Days! Weekends feature special animal encounters — and Sunday’s high is right around 50, so you may even be able to see Miss Fiona!
