You can expect to find local bands showcasing their talents, and if your taste buds are itching for some grub, there's Fire Tacos & Cantina and Christos serving up delicious options—not to mention, Starbucks is there to quench your thirst with free cold brew, an ideal pick-me-up for a summer evening. Community stands are set throughout, offering insights on their services, even as attendees are encouraged to mingle, learn, and play yard games that invite laughter and friendly competition.

But it's not all play; the event doubles as a platform to voice your opinion on future changes to Alki Playfield. Seattle Parks and Recreation is on the scene, eager to hear your ideas about what the play area and parkway should become as stated on Parkways Seattle. Missed the booth? No worries, they've got you covered with an online survey that's a breeze to complete.
