Looking for things to do in Sioux City? Every month, I bring you a list of fun events and activities for kids and families in our area. This month, I'm going to do that, but with a special twist in light of the unique times we are living through. While a few in-person events are beginning to be scheduled, many of these events are virtual and/or social distancing friendly, so you can enjoy them from your comfy couch, or dance along in your living room, or go on your own time when no one else is around! I'm also including some silly holidays from the National Day Calendar in addition to the big ones you probably celebrate every year. Don't feel obligated to celebrate them, but if you're looking for some fun things to do to liven up quarantine with kids, maybe they will inspire you!
