Countdown to West Seattle Summer Fest 2015: Kid stuff!

Only four days to Friday – the first of three days of West Seattle Summer Fest 2015. We’re counting down with daily previews. Today – free kids’ activities!

Yes, you’ll find rides and bouncy toys at Summer Fest, and those require tickets that you can buy from ride operator Clowns Unlimited, BUT the West Seattle Junction Association-presented festival also offers FREE fun for kids, including:

*>West Seattle Art Nest-organized activities – Theresa says, “We will be decorating homemade crowns and ‘fish sticks’ (paper plate fish glued to Popsicle sticks) and bracelet making! We are also going to have a community wall with a mural for everyone to color or draw or write a note; everything made is either wearable or easy to carry.”

*Facepainting with Lashanna, who’s at Summer Fest every year – as a Pathfinder K-8 parent, she helped establish the free kids’-activity area at Summer Fest eight years ago.

See the map for the kid-zone location. Also at Summer Fest, for families:

*Parents’ Rest StopCity Mouse is offering its space to families with young children again this year – on SW Alaska just east of California.

And if you missed it:

SUMMER FEST BASICS: All in one place, as published here last Friday.

    Are the hours for the kid’s area (bouncy houses and rides) the same as the Summerfest hours overall? Some years they are the same, but in years past- like 2-3 years ago, they’ve started operating earlier than Summerfest on Sundays.

      Good question, Sam-C, we’ll find out. Will take till tomorrow morning, though.

    Yeah, I seem to remember that Saturdays the rides going until 8pm in the past? If I recall correctly, the vendors closed at 6pm but everything else stayed open. We’ll see how it unfolds this year! We love the Summer Fest.

Sorry, comment time is over.
