We checked in with West Seattle Hi-Yu Festival president Tim Winston to ask how construction of the “How Sweet It Is” float (Junior Court’s idea, as chosen last December) was going – since the float is scheduled to debut in the Sequim Irrigation Festival parade tomorrow – and he sent photos, along with this update:

As usual for Hi-Yu, the volunteers have been able to get just enough done, just in time. Float chair (& Hi-Yu VP) Deena Mahn completed the float with much help from her family and a crew of helpers. Life Church @ 35th & Cloverdale has been kind enough to allow us to do assembly in their parking lot.

We are using our current trailer, but hoping to enlist sponsors to allow us to order a new *enclosed* trailer soon.

We’ve reported on the fundraising drive before, here (contact info’s in this story). This float represents West Seattle in parades all over the region throughout the late spring and summer, including not only West Seattle’s own American Legion Grand Parade (here’s one of our stories from last year) coming up July 18, but also the huge Seafair Torchlight Parade one week after that.
