What a fun weekend we have coming up in Southern Maryland! In fact, there’s so much fun, you might even forget that tax day is April 17. Looking to get out? Check out these three events happening in Southern Maryland this weekend, April 13-15.

Party with the Otters at Ottermania!

The Calvert Marine Museum’s otters are cute and fun to watch. Come celebrate them this Saturday!

The museum will host Ottermania in honor of its favorite mammals on Saturday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dance “The Swim” with the museum’s otter mascots, get your face painted for $5, make an otter-themed craft, touch otter fur, and learn “otterly” terrific facts! (Their pun, not ours!)

Regular museum admission applies. For more information, visit
