Every Tuesday, we send out our weekly With the Kids newsletter, packed with ideas from the Going Out Gurus and great reads for parents from the rest of The Post. For a glimpse of what’s inside the newsletter, here are three of our top event picks for the days ahead:

UniverSoul Circus (Thursday through May 20): With acts from all over the world, this circus is as much international as it is UniverSoul.

Solomons Maritime Festival (Saturday): Did you know that the state dog of Maryland is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever? See the dogs in action and learn more about the state’s rich maritime culture.

International Children’s Day Festival (Sunday): More than 20 embassies will participate in this kid-oriented feature of Passport DC.
