Our friends at the Going Out Guide recommend the following family-friendly activities this weekend.

Saturday, March 2

Reading: A Family Affair : Eleven artists — from magicians to traditional Indian dancers to puppeteers— join storytellers and authors in a morning that celebrates reading. The celebration is from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the James Lee Community Center, 2855 Annandale Rd., Falls Church. There is a suggested donation of $5 per family. For information call 703-238-0866.

Family Day 2013: Families Rock!:Perhaps the hippest family-friendly event in Washington this weekend will be at an art museum. For one day, the Corcoran Gallery of Art will be transformed into a DJ-scratching, break dancing, graffiti-covered party in honor of its latest exhibit, "Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s." Families will also be able to take family-friendly tours, decorate shirts and make instruments. The free event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Corcoran, 500 17th St. NW in the District. For information call 202-639-1700.

Popovich Comedy Pet Theater: It's said that you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but how about a pack of rescued pups? That is what Gregory Popovich has set out to do with this show that takes dogs and cats out of shelters and gives them a second chance on stage. The show is at 1 and 4 p.m. Saturday at Warner Theatre, 13th and E streets in the District. Tickets are $35 to $75. For information call 202-783-4000.

Lego Build: We have plenty of notable buildings in Washington, but one is missing— the one you build out of Lego bricks!
