The 2012 West Seattle Hi-Yu Festival float, with the theme “Secret Garden” (chosen last December, from an idea by Riley Fredericks), has made its debut – and brought home an award. At Saturday’s parade in Marysville, the Hi-Yu float was honored for “Best Floral Display,” as reported on the Hi-Yu website. Its next scheduled parade appearance is in Port Orchard on June 30th; three weeks after that, you’ll get to see it here at home in the West Seattle American Legion Post 160 Grand Parade on July 21st.

    Congratulations Hi-Yu! Very sweet!

    Where can we purchase the totem pole pins to support Hi-Yu? I think they are pretty nifty.

    Thanks for all of the support. Pins ($6) and Buttons ($1) will be available all festival events from Hi-Yu Jr. & Sr. Court members (look for the sashes & crowns) or from the Hi-Yu booth at Seafair Pirate’s Landing (7/6) and Junction Merchants Summer Fest (7/13-15). You can always donate @
