Thank you to the 31 businesses and non-profits providing games, activities and projects. Some highlights:
WSBx3 (West Seattle Blog, WS Bowl, WestSide Baby) – This trio is offering pumpkin bowling for all ability levels.
Community School of West Seattle – Their preschool farm is coming to Harvest Festival with a special guest, a 6-month-old calf!
Young at Art – As usual, a selection of super fun and crafty art projects.
You’ll also find projects like making tea light lanterns, paper bag black cats and harvest bracelets. Activities include an obstacle course, pin the tail on the scarecrow and carnival games. There’s a free costume photo booth by Donna Ryan and cider pressing. Our neighborhood can really pull together for a great festival!
Thanks to all who help make this happen!
