What better way to mark Presidents Day than by dressing up like royalty and heading to the RainForest? Today’s family-friendly shindig is a celebration of all things amphibian — including the role played by enchanted frogs in fairytales. That explains the suggestion to come dressed as your favorite princess or prince. It also accounts for the real live make-believe frog mascots and princesses that will be roaming the RainForest, where more than a dozen frog species — many of them endangered — reside. Guests can get up close and personal with at least a few of them, in between stops for stories, crafts, music, dancing, and prizes from the Radio Disney crew. It’s all happening from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. inside the RainForest, where it is always a balmy 80 degrees. Kids ages 11 and younger are free with an adult admission, which today is $5 for Cuyahoga County residents and $8 for out-of-towners. And as always, parking is free.
