Saturday is getting closer! And so far, looks like sun will grace the 2016 Morgan Junction Community Festival. We have even more information tonight about what you’ll find in and around Morgan Junction Park during the festival, which is coordinated and presented by the Morgan Community Association.

Festival hours are 10 am-5 pm. When you get there, you’ll find a program at the festival-info booth in the park. The overall schedule grid is here; here are the featured events:

Music/entertainment lineup:

Vendors and Community Groups, starting at 10 am

More than 40 commercial vendors and community group reps will be in the parking lot behind Zeeks Pizza (WSB sponsor) and Whisky West, on Beveridge Place, and Eddy Street. Highlights include the Seed and Plant Exchange booth; Ventana Construction (WSB sponsor) will feature an architect with whom you can discuss backyard cottage design/build ideas and requirements, Parie Hines of LD Arch Design (also a WSB sponsor); a representative from the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA) will be available; and dozens more (we’ll be there reporting live as usual).

Writers’ Realm – Starting at 10:30 am, it’s back, featuring fifteen West Seattle authors, with readings and book sales at booths in the parking lot vendor area behind Zeeks and Whisky West – the authors’ list is here.

Kids’ Activities – 10:30 am to 3:30 pm. Jennifer Young, owner of My Three Little Birds (WSB sponsor), is coordinating the children’s activities. Chief entertainment for the kids is The Bubbleman, of course. He begins his always-pleasing wild and colorful show at 11:30 in the park. Craft activities start at 10:30 and end at 3:30. In addition to the crafts, face painters will be in the kid activity area from 10:00 to 3:30 and a balloon artist between 12:15 and 3:00. Mode Music Studioss (WSB sponsor) will hold half-hour Kindermusik sessions for younger children beginning at 12:30 and ending at 3:30.

Seattle Police Mounted Patrol – visiting at some point between 12:30 and 4 pm
Meet the horses (and the human officers), who are based right here in West Seattle.

Bark of Morgan dog parade and contests – 1:30 pm on, bring your leashed dog to SW Eddy just north of Morgan Junction Park – costumes encouraged! Parade through the festival grounds and then return for judged contests around 1:45 pm – more info here.

Spatter of Morgan – 3-4 pm
You’ll have the chance to “spatter” the soon-to-be-demolished building north of the park (site of future park expansion!) with water-based paint.

Tomorrow – we’ll preview Morgan Junction Community Festival food! (Thanks to festival publicity coordinator Susan Madrid for providing the detailed information featured above.)
