Dig your tie-dye and bell bottoms out of the back of your closet for the 43rd annual Mount Baker Day in the Park, scheduled for Sunday, September 14. This year’s theme is “Summer of Love”, necessitating all your best hippie gear from the 60’s and 70’s. Day in the Park is sponsored by the Mount Baker Community Club, and activities for family members of all ages are on the agenda for the day. The annual kids parade will kick off the festivities, and all participants (everyone is welcome!) should meet in front of Franklin High School at 9:45 a.m.
Following the parade, you’ll have a park’s worth of activities to keep you busy: field day games such as tug-of-war and a watermelon-eating contest; the 2nd annual community talent show; live music; a treasure hunt and obstacle course; a kids art contest; and much more! The Grilled Cheese Experience food truck (delicious sandwiches that are sure to be a hit with the kids, as well) will be on hand to keep everyone fed throughout the day.
Organizers are still looking for volunteers to help out with the day’s festivities, so if you would like to lend a hand, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget your flower crowns and hippie beads, and we hope to see you all there!
Mount Baker Park is located at South McClellan Street and Lake Park Drive South.
