4 sneaky things to do — and 4 other weekend highlights

Psst! Looking for fun this weekend? Here are a few suggestions on the down-low. If you have other recommendations to share, post a clandestine note on the comments thread.

Cadge a free bite at the Edible Book Festival. Those of you who appreciate humor with a literary bent will love this event: Bibliophiles, book artists and food lovers create edibles inspired by a book or pun on a book title; they’re exhibited, documented and then consumed, at 11 a.m. Saturday, Third Place Commons, 17171 Bothell Way N.E., Lake Forest Park. It’s free.

Ditch the crowds at Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. The festival officially starts Monday, but you know traffic will be bumper to bumper by then. Get an early look at fields in bloom by heading up to Mount Vernon this weekend. You’ll see more daffodils than tulips, because it’s still early in the season. But who doesn’t love yellow? For directions and a bloom map that tells you exactly what’s blooming when, go to the Tulip Festival website.

See something naughty at the Moisture Festival. Yes, there are family-friendly comedy and circusy acts at Hale’s Palladium in Fremont, but those who prefer a little peek-a-boo can opt for burlesque at Broadway Performance Hall. Seattle Times writer Michael Upchurch says the festival is off to a dazzling start this year. Tickets are going fast, though, so check the website for availability.
