The weekend is nearly here and I’ve got a couple fun ideas for you and your family…best of all, they’re free! My favorite type of event 🙂
The first weekend in August is Seafair weekend in Seattle. This is an entire weekend of fun along the shores of Lake Washington. Hydro plane races, air shows put on by the Blue Angels, wakeboard demos, and BMX stunt shows. Depending on what interests you, find a park near the water (early!!!), pack snack and waters for all, a couple blankets to sit on and enjoy the celebration! For a full list of the schedule visit here. Be aware, some parks do charge admission/parking so research before heading out.
At the Seattle Center:
-The Fountain!!!! Get your splash on and enjoy the sun!
-5:00 PM Summer Playground Party
Summer fun, music and creative play for the pre-teen crowd FREE
Next 50 Plaza
-As mentioned in a previous post, they are also hosting free movies at the mural starting at dusk. This weeks movie is LaLa Land
Free and fun for the art enthusist:
-Seattle Art Fair is going on this weekend. Many galleries are free and the fair is distributed throughout downtown. Check it out right here!
-Looking to get some music into your weekend? Why not visit the Ballard locks and enjoy a concert at the Locks? Take a glance at the calendar at Hiram M. Chittenden Locks .
Have a fun free event in Seattle that I may have over looked? Please share here! We are always looking to add to our Northwest Bucket list, when it’s free its even more enjoyable!
Have an awesome weekend everyone! Stay cool and play hard!
