Weekend Kid Picks for Labor Day Weekend

If you’re taking the kids to Bumbershoot this weekend, be sure to swing by the Kids Pavilion for crafting, movie making, hula-hooping and more.

And if you’re not Bubmershootin’ or heading out of town for the long weekend, there’s still plenty to do around town with the kids:


Go Car-Free in Columbia City

The second Seattle car-free day is this Sunday in Hillman City and Columbia City and coincides with bicycle Sunday along Lake Washington Boulevard S. We were pleased to see a sign in the window of the Columbia City Bakery this week announcing their plans to stay open late that day. Here’s hoping this car-free day is more successful than last week’s debacle.

8/31, 3-6pm

Take a Moonlight Walk

Moonpaper Tent celebrates the end of summer where “fire flies, fairies, moon snails, and more help create an illuminating visual tableau of lights and quiet, as children and parents create lanterns to take along with them on a magical moonlight walk through the neighborhood. Whispered stories, glittering face-paint, and glowing surprises await!”

8/30, 7-10pm (drop-in anytime) with scheduled walks at 8:30 and 10:00, $8 each or two for $15

Bremerton Blackberry Festival

Hop a ferry to Bremerton for the annual blackberry festival. Enjoy arts and crafts, live music, and a chalk art contest. And of course there will be plenty of blackberry treats on hand, including “blackberry slugs- a delicious type of maple bar made with blackberry filling and whipped cream.” Um, yum?

8/30 – 9/1, starts daily at 10am, ends at 8pm Friday, 7pm Saturday, and 6pm Sunday.

Blues for Food Fest

Dance in the grass to five local blues bands at this Magnuson Park event to support the P-Patch Trust.

8/30, 11am-7pm,  Magnuson Park, $20 adults, $10 kids (12 and under)
