Summer on the way: Seafair Clowns at YMCA Healthy Kids Day

Before the sun went back behind the clouds, blue sky and a big crowd graced the West Seattle Family YMCA (WSB sponsor) Healthy Kids Day fun at midday today – and WSB happened to be there as the Seafair Clowns rolled up. Great reminder that the heart of summer-fun season is just a few months away (the West Seattle American Legion Grand Parade is exactly three months from today – July 18 – and one week before that, on 7/11, the clowns’ “cousins” [?] the Seafair Pirates will storm Alki). Back to Healthy Kids’ Day – it’s an annual tradition, with indoor and outdoor activities:

The West Seattle Y was one of 10 around the metro area to celebrate Healthy Kids Day today.

    The Seattle Times had an article on the front page highlighting the Seattle Seafair Clowns. Norrie Suder, Seafair Clown since 1957, was in attendance at the YMCA Healthy Kids Day.
