Weekend Kid Picks: 9/6 – 9/7

I hope to see you all at the Seattle Tilth Harvest Fair on Saturday, but that’s not all that’s going on this weekend. There’s plenty to do for kids and grownups alike:

Go Swimming

This is your last chance to hit the public outdoor pools before they close for the season. Mounger pool in Magnolia has family swim (and a corkscrew slide!) from 5:30-7 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Or for the little ones they have gentle swim from 11am – noon. Colman pool in West Seattle is a heated salt water pool and has family swim from 5-7pm, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Colman Pool – 8603 Fauntleroy Way SW; $2.75 – $3.75 admission
Mounger Pool – 2535 32nd Ave. W, $2.75 – $3.75 admission; corkscrew slide is $1 extra

Aki Matsuri (Japanese Fall Festival)

This celebration of Japanese culture has all things Japanese, including a Japanese flea market, Japanese arts and crafts vendors, and plenty of performances, like Japanese drumming, a tea ceremony demonstration, and puppet shows.

Bellevue Community College Main Campus – 3000 Landerholm Circle SE, Bellevue
