DC Super Hero Jennifer Dummett for The Children's Museum

11 Exciting Events You Won’t Want To Miss This February

February may be a short month, even in a leap year, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time to have some fun.

There’s certainly a lot going on this month, and it isn’t all about Valentine’s Day. As far as winter months go, February is my favorite. The daylight is slowly starting to come back, we usually have at least one day of pretty snow, and the Valentine’s Day vibes do ensure it’s all pretty romantic.

If you’re ready to have some fun and you aren’t just looking for Valentine’s celebrations, we’ve got a few suggestions. Happy February, fam.
