Here’s what’s up this weekend for Bay Area families:
1. Got a comic book fan at home? How about a film buff? This weekend San Francisco’s Moscone Center hosts WonderCon, Northern California’s biggest comics confab, and the San Francisco International Children’s Film Festival. Among the films, “Adina’s Deck,” a movie about cyberbullying tweens (pictured above). ($6-$12 for a one-day pass to both)

2. Meet race car driver Jody Brenner at the new “Speed” exhibit at Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. Check out his Mazda RX7, modified for racing, make your own race car, and compete in a pit stop race.

3. The Grateful Dads hit the trail this weekend with tots in tow at Newark’s Coyote Hills Regional Park. Rendezvous at 9 a.m. Saturday. (Free)

4. An open house at Oakland’s Monart art studio offers cool stuff to look at, refreshments and free art classes, including sessions for younger kids, and one just for teens and adults. Sunday, 1-5 p.m. Free but rsvp.

5. Or sit back and enjoy the whimsical penguin fave “Happy Feet” at Livermore’s “Movies in the Gym” on Friday night. ($1 admission).
