This Weekend: Fireworks, Crafts and Clydesdales

Is it spring, is winter actually over? Nobody knows, but despite the cold temperatures we’ve been having, there is still stuff happening in the city this weekend.

April 9th

Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival: There’s something for everyone at this festival: The grown-up crowd can enjoy the beer-and-cider garden, while attendees of all ages can check out dragon boats, sailboat making and a food truck rally. Kids especially will get a kick out of the face painting and paper-bag puppets, but, hey, if that’s your thing, too, we’re not going to judge. 600 Water St. SW to the Waterfront Park and Titanic Memorial. 1 to 9 p.m. Fireworks at 8:30 p.m., rain or shine. Free. – The Washington Post

Makers’ Mart Arts and Craft Show at the National Museum of Women in the Arts: The museum’s Great Hall transforms into a pop-up artisan market this weekend, featuring the handmade work of more than 40 women artisans. Participating designers will hawk everything from jewelry and paper crafts to soy candles and wooden wares. Through Tuesday. Noon to 5 p.m. $10. – The Washington Post
