Awesome Con, the Mid-Atlantic’s premier pop culture convention, takes place this weekend, June 16-18, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, celebrating all aspects of geekdom and pop culture with a wide assortment of engaging events, comic books, collectibles, toys, games, original art, cosplay and more. And not only do I have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky KFDC reader, kids ages 10 and under can get in free when an accompanying adult uses the coupon code KIDFRIENDLYDC on a kid’s ticket!

The event practically guarantees to be blast for the whole family. For the first time, there will be Awesome Con Jr., a family-focused pavilion providing hours of fun with entertaining and educational programs just for kids. There will be interactive opportunities with characters from Nickelodeon’s hit preschool series PAW Patrol and Shimmer and Shine, plus additional fun experiences from The Emoji Movie, How to Train Your Dragon characters, LEGO building zones, a kids costume parade, and more. And making it easier than ever to spend time together as a family and encourage creative play, children ages 10 and under get in free with the above code.

Adventure Theatre’s summer production and the last of their 2016/17 season opens in just a few weeks. Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook begins June 23 for a nearly two-month run. And one lucky KFDC reader can win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it!

Based on the book series by Barbara Park and directed by Rick Hammerly, this stage version presents a tale for all ages to enjoy: When Junie B. Jones, with her two bestest friends in the world, loses her new furry mittens to some “stealers,” she has to investigate. But Junie B. might have something she forgot to return, too…

There’s more to enjoy than just a performance — patrons can also partake in a pre-show scavenger hunt to earn a prize. Participants who find all of the items will receive a Junie B. Jones set of five trading cards for our 65th season.

Adventure Theatre is also partnering with a local nonprofit to collect school supplies for underprivileged kids throughout the run of the show. When you go see it, consider bringing donations of new backpacks, notebooks, colored pencils, crayons, kid-friendly scissors, paper, glue sticks, markers, and activity books to help out children in need.

So, are you ready for summer entertainment and then some? Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook will run at Adventure Theatre in Glen Echo Park from June 23 – August 14, 2017. Performances are Saturday through Monday at varying times, and occasional Friday evenings, too. Tickets are $19.50 and can be purchased in advance online or by calling the Box Office at 301.634.2270.

Giveaway! See Amazon Adventure 3D at the National Museum of Natural History

Amazon Adventure 3D tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates’ fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risks his life for science in the 1850’s.

As in any great detective story, audiences will experience, in immersive IMAX®, the compelling clues Bates unearths in his major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others that helps them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive.

Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and, most importantly, putting the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the “beautiful proof” for Natural Selection.

Audiences will be wowed by the mind-boggling examples of camouflage and mimicry and inspired by Bates’ endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature from the time he was a young boy.

Amazon Adventures 3D is playing at the Johnson IMAX Theater in the National Museum of Natural History. Running time is 45 minutes. Tickets are available online or at the Box Office located on the main floor of the museum.

Giveaway: For a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see Amazon Adventures 3D at the Johnson IMAX Theatre (tickets must be used by June 1, 2017), simply leave a comment below or on the KidFriendly DC Facebook (enter on both for two shots at winning) page naming your child’s favorite Amazonian creature. This giveaway will run through April 28, then a winner will be drawn at random and notified shortly thereafter. Good luck!
