That Nats are playing at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend, but if you and the kids can’t make it to the game (or even if you can), you can get your baseball fix this Saturday, August 14, when the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum present Nationals Baseball Family Day. From 11:30am – 2pm, there will be storytelling, crafts, games, and more fun all centered around America’s favorite pastime. And the best part: some of the Nationals players will be there for a meet and greet and photo ops. Kids (and adults, too) are encouraged to dress in their best Nationals gear for maximum fanfare.
This FREE event will take place in the National Portrait Gallery’s Kogod Courtyard. The museum is located at Eighth and F Streets, NW.
And if all of this gets you psyched to see a game, you can still get tickets for the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday games here. Some inside scoop: The first 10,000 fans to arrive at Sunday’s game will receive a Kids Back-to-School Supply Kit. Plus, it’s a Family Fun Day. Oh, and Strasburg is pitching.
