Please share with your school and groups – everyone is invited to join!
Also, great news! We were awarded a Department of Neighborhoods grant this year to fund the event! Want to put something fun together for the parade (bike decoration party, costumes etc)? Or host a game at the festival? Let us know, because we can fund it! Please get back to us by April 4th if you are interested in hosting a craft/game.
Parade Start Location: West Seattle Elementary parking lot (6760 34th Ave SW)
Parade Start Time: 11 am (location opens at 10 am to gather; we recommend coming early for face painting and to make a craft!)

Want to bring a big group? Awesome, please let us know in advance so that we can be prepared: e-mail Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org
Small groups, want to just show up? That is fine, look for people with a ballon to help answer your questions.
Want to craft something in advance, or organize a parade prep party? Fantastic! Please email Lauren at email@example.com or call 616-502-3182 to get in touch. We will happily help coordinate and can pay for the materials.

Festival will include:
Proudly working with Keep High Point Green, and the bees love it! Come see what’s new at the bee garden this year!
Because it’s fun and builds community – with the added benefit of supporting bees, pollinators and our environment (and why not come craft something to give Mom for Mother’s Day – wink!).
We hope to see you there!
