PHOTOS: Fauntleroy Fall Festival 2019

2:53 PM: We’ve been talking for more than a week about Fauntleroy Creek salmon. This afternoon, you can celebrate them by making a salmon hat at the Fauntleroy Fall Festival. Or if you’re more interested in birds – don’t miss the raptors behind The Hall at Fauntleroy!

Also a petting zoo:

And pony rides:

Maybe you’d rather sit and listen to music. That’s happening indoors as well as outdoors:

(That’s the Hilltop Jazz Project.) From Seattle Fire and Police, Engine 37 and the Mobile Precinct are visiting:

They’re in the church parking lot, as are opportunities to bounce and climb:

Inside the church/Y building, other attractions – cakes!

The decorated-cake contest judging is concluding, while the cakewalk is about to begin. The West Seattle Community Orchestras “instrument petting zoo” is inside Fauntleroy Church too:

This festival’s on until 5 pm – here’s info, including a map. More photos later.

ADDED 7:52 PM: More of what made the festival educational as well as fun – you could talk with Fauntleroy Watershed Council members:

Or learn about preparedness:

We almost forgot to talk about the food – from Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes Catering squash soup to the famous Endolyne Joe’s (WSB sponsor) sliders:

The festival is presented by a coalition of Fauntleroy organizations and businesses.

    One of the things that made me so happy today was the diversity of the crowd.  Sorry the photos don’t represent that.

    Thanks to the Fauntleroy community Association for another wonderful event. We had alot of kids having fun with our face painters. I adult and 2 youths doing the face painting.  A great intergenerational activity. Such a pleasure to see all the families having fun. Photos are posted on the West Seattle Timebank”s FB site. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
