The (Sled) Dog Days of March Happen at Ikidarod at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History

 

Sat 3/3 @ 10AM-4PM

The Olympics aren’t the only winter sports in town (or out of town). The mighty Iditarod sled-dog race in Alaska begins on Sat 3/3, and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History commemorates it in a special all-day Saturday “Ikidarod”.

The Ikidarod in the Smead Discovery Center is composed child-oriented activities keyed to dogsledding. Attendees can dress up like a “musher” or try on a sled-dog harness for a photo opp (get that 50 Shades of Grey imagery out of your heads this instant!).

The museum’s hosting the taxidermied remains of iconic sled-dog Balto means a special Balto floor puzzle, a life-size plush-toy Balto and tie-in crafts.

The Ikidarod comes included with regular museum admission; no registration is required.
