3 ways to spend a sunny Saturday

Keep your arrows in your quivers, readers. The big entertainment news of the weekend may be “The Hunger Games” — but who wants to spend the first truly nice weekend of 2012 indoors?

Here are three (cheap! fun!) events that take place mostly outside:

First, Georgetown’s monthly Art Attack — a kind of open house/art walk through one of Seattle’s funkiest neighborhoods — takes on a musical bent Saturday night, when 20 bands will play in cafes, clubs and other quirky, only-in-Geo’town locations. It starts at 5 and it’s free. Details here.

Also on Saturday, early risers can join the Discovery Park Bird Tour, starting at 8 a.m.. Bring binoculars if you have them to 3801 W. Government Way, Seattle. It costs $3 and you should preregister (206-386-4236 or www.seattle.gov/parks).

Or, sing “Happy Birthday, dear Monorail” at Seattle Monorail’s 50th anniversary party on Saturday. Music, snacks, historic photos and more are promised from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Seattle Center terminal. You may be able to score a free ride, too, if you show a ticket stub pre-dating 2010 or a photo of yourself as a child riding the elevated train.

I’m going to go find the sunscreen now (yes, I’m an optimist), but I’ll leave you with this video weekend preview, recorded this morning at KING 5 TV:
