Big Day of Play

Please join Seattle Parks and Recreation and title sponsor, PCC Natural Markets, for this free, family-friendly event!

Mark your calendar from noon 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 28, to see what Seattle Parks and Recreation and other community organizations are offering in the way of fun activities and healthy food. This year’s Big Day of Play event will be held at Mount Baker Rowing and Sailing Center, 3800 Lake Washington Blvd. S.

There will be sample activities from Seattle Parks and Recreation facilities and programs, paddling and boating events, a main stage celebration of cultural diversity with music and entertainment, creative play opportunities, youth demonstrations and healthy food vendors. Stop by the PCC TasteMobile, where kids 12 and under can participate in a PCC Kid Picks taste test and all ages can spin the Color Wheel to test their food knowledge and win prizes. Or Children’s Hospital’s Free bike helmet giveaway for children at least 1 years old to age 18 (Wearers must be present and be fitted to receive a helmet.
