Sunshine is expected again tomorrow, so it’ll be a great day to spend part of your Saturday a short distance east of West Seattle, at Duwamish Waterway Park in South Park, for the annual Duwamish River Festival.

The day will start with the Walk/Bike/Paddle fundraiser to help support the festival and get you there in a fun way – starting at 9 am, with departures from West Seattle. Not too late to sign up! Check out the options here.

Once you get to the park (7900 10th Ave. S. – map), here’s the entertainment and activity lineup, courtesy of Alberto Rodriguez at the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition:

T’ilibshudub/“Singing Feet”, Duwamish Tribal Youth Dance Group – 12-12:30 p.m.

Flokórico Guelaguetza, Mexican folkloric dance – 12:45-1:15 p.m.

Rainier Vista Khmer Dance Group, the longest running Cambodian Culture Dance Group in Seattle that presents our Khmer heritage – 1:30-2:00 p.m.

Vicious Puppies Crew, mind-blowing break dancing youth group – 2:15-2:45 p.m.

Supersones, Rootsy, acoustic Cuban dance music from the Northwest’s premier Son band – 3-3:50 p.m.

We will have a bouncy house that will be going from 12:30-4:00 p.m., a dunk tank that will be happening for 10 minutes every half hour … we will have raffles inbetween acts, last year’s Seafair Queen (Veronica Quintero) will be our bilingual MC, a fire truck for the first couple of hours, boat and kayak tours, a free water taxi running from Georgetown to South Park, a bicycle repair shop (throughout the whole event), free lunch (tamales, hot dogs and salad), interactive educational booths and many other things.
