Storm fails to stop Fauntleroy Fall Festival volunteers and visitors

Thanks to Brandy for the top photo – part of the haul from this year’s drive-up/ride-up/walk-up Fauntleroy Fall Festival. It went on as planned despite the stormy weather that swept through this afternoon. Volunteers were at stations to offer some traditional festival favorites – with the salmon hats, Jeff and Chantille from John L. Scott Real Estate-Westwood (WSB sponsor):

With hot chocolate and cider, the Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes Catering team:

With puzzles and pencils for kids, Ginger and Shellie from HomeStreet Bank (WSB sponsor):

Mike from the Fauntleroy Community Association offered takeaways including street-safety signs:

Music, too! Organizers asked festival visitors to sign up in advance for a time slot to go through, to avoid a traffic jam. They’d hosted more than 150 visitors by the time we stopped by around the end of the first of three hours. The festival is always free, powered by donations and volunteers.

    Thank you so much! Even with the huge storm, they were still there!!! We loved the short drive, and the energy that everyone had, bringing more than just some food, and treats, but love to this community!

    I can’t thank these folks enough.  You brightened up my 8 year old son’s day so, so much.  He had worked on a book report all morning and was so excited and happy to drive through and then look through all of his goodies when we got home.  These littles have been through so much over the last year, this was such a sweet event.  My son was so grateful that you were all out there even in this storm and kept saying how happy it made him and how kind you all were.  The homemade ceramic pumpkin was a huge hit and is on his nightstand.Thank you!!!!  You all are what make West Seattle such an amazing place to live!

     A few more photos: These happy characters walked through, fortunately, before the heavy storm. Despite the weather, good music was present for all to enjoy along the way.This tent had space in the band for kids to participate.

Sorry, comment time is over.
