Festival Planning Meeting
Aug 12 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Our 12th Annual Festival may turn out to be our biggest Festival yet!  We’re partnering with Seattle Summer Parkways for a huge celebration on Saturday, September 19th.

As always, we’ll have great hands-on workshops, educational displays, interactive activities, lively music, local food and active exhibitors.  This year we’re throwing a GARDEN PARTY!  A Tea Garden, Mad Hats and more … come to the planning meeting and help us bring it all together. All ideas are welcome! If you can’t make this planning session, please contact Howard to get on the email list and keep up to date on festival planning.

Ballard Share and Play Opening Event
Aug 22 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Let’s start sharing and playing together!  We will celebrate the opening of Ballard Share and Play at Toast on August 22nd, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Parents, kids, and everyone else are encouraged to come and enjoy activities from Seattle ReCreative. And if you have a toy or kid-friendly item to bring to the bin, even better.
Many thanks go out to Barrie, Jenny, Karen, and our amazing volunteers for leading and organizing this project. They are doing so much and such a great job.
We could also always use more volunteers!  We are especially looking for folks to keep the bins organized and clean once a week, from August 22nd to the end of November.  Contact Barrie if you can help.
