If you haven’t taken your kids (or inner kid) to see “The Secret Language of Animals” at Tacoma Art Museum yet, this Sunday is a great day to go. The museum is holding its quarterly free Community Festival in conjunction with the animal-themed exhibit, and from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. there’s all sorts of animal activity going on down there.

Highlights: 11 a.m. Alaskan Kuteeyaa Dancers mimicking animals and spirits in Tlingit-language songs

1 p.m. Meet a real sloth from Pt. Defiance Zoo

2 p.m. Be part of a story-telling about mosquitoes.

4 p.m. Hear the Rainier Ringers bell choir play faves from “The Lion King” and more

Ongoing: Design a bird mask, spray-paint animal prints, draw a bunny and more. And of course, don’t forget the exhibit upstairs in two galleries. (Hint: your kids will love the life-size bronze horses.)

10 a.m.-5 p.m. April 25. Free. Tacoma Art Museum, 1701 Pacific Ave., Tacoma. 253-272-4258, www.tacomaartmuseum.org
