Prime time for West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival activities is just about here. First – today’s the deadline for girls to apply for the Hi-Yu Junior Court, whose new queen and princesses will be chosen this Friday, and coronated as part of Friday’s Hiawatha Fun Fest activities. Here’s the form (which explains the requirements and expectations, too). The Fun Fest, by the way, is noon-3 pm this Friday at Hiawatha Community Center (usually out on the east lawn), with lots of activities.
Then on Saturday, it’s the Hi-Yu Community Breakfast – 9 am to noon at Admiral Congregational Church Hall, California/Hill, $6 adults/$3 kids, proceeds benefit the Hi-Yu Scholarship Program. (Donations also will be accepted for WestSide Baby and West Seattle Food Bank.) And on Tuesday, July 19th, it’s the Hi-Yu Concert in the Park with West Seattle Big Band on the east lawn at Hiawatha, 7-8:30 pm. (Plus you’ll see the Hi-Yu float, royalty, and volunteers in the West Seattle Grand Parade at 11 am July 23rd, along California SW from Lander to Edmunds! Our photo, by WSB contributor Stephanie Chacharon, shows the Sparkling Seattle Hi-Yu float at West Seattle Summer Fest last weekend.)
