Get the scoop on the best family activities in Seattle.
A Seafair sanctioned community event co-produced by the Wallingford Community Senior Center and the Wallingford Chamber of Commerce. For 65 years Wallingford has played host to the longest running Seafair Parade known as the Kiddie Parade. The parade features kids as major participants and includes families and local businesses. Drill teams, local marching bands and family oriented organizations will be represented in the Parade. This year's theme is "Green Summer Up!" Costumes and participants that demonstrate environmental awareness, recycling/composting, gardening and other "green" subjects are encouraged! The Parade will be followed by the 'Wallingford Family' Festival at the Meridian Park adjacent to the Good Shepherd Center. The Festival portion of the day will include local vendors selling handicrafts, booths featuring demonstrations and food vendors. There will also be plenty of activities for kids, including bouncy houses and games. Two stages will present the music of local bands and kids' music groups. Plenty of fun and variety for all our Wallingford Family! New to the 'Wallingford Family' Festival this year is the “Beer, Wine & Bites Tasting Garden”. Enjoy delicious bite-size dishes and fabulous beer and wine by local restaurants and producers while enjoying the festivities. Tasting Garden is 21-and-over-only. Valid photo ID required. Open 1-5pm.
