Big Top Rock

Black Friday brawls and rum-spiked eggnog aside, the holidays are all about the kids, who, God bless them, truly do believe this to be the most wonderful time of the year. To celebrate with some rockin' quality family time, parents can fuel up their young'uns with some hot chocolate and take them to TZZ's Big Top Rock. Each morning show starts with circus performers like hand-balancer Christopher Phi and ballerina Ariana Lallone (we predict tutus and ballet slippers will be added to many a girl's Christmas list after seeing her graceful hula-hoop and contortionist act). Afterwards, musicians from local kids music collective Kindiependent will perform. Kids are encouraged to dance along—and so are you, if you want to be a fun parent. The first two shows will feature Seattle's favorite children's troubadour Caspar Babypants, who just released a cheery new album called I Found You!, featuring songs about crickets, kangaroos, and the traveling adventures of a ball of lint named Fuzz.
