There are a couple free, family events coming up in Kent that you may want to mark on your calendars now.
The first is this Friday evening.
It’s called the You, Me, We, Festival and it features entertainment by area school groups and others, bouncy houses, arts and crafts, face painting and more. It’s my favorite price-free! You can purchase hot dogs and soda for 1.00 each. It’s 6:oo-9:30 PM this Friday at the Showare Center.
The second is on March 3rd. This one is called You Are Remarkable, and it’s an event organized by Valley Medical Center as a celebration of some of their new programs for young families. This event is also at the Showare. It runs from 10AM-2PM and features bouncy houses, a climbing wall, free refreshment and all kind of kids’ entertainment, including appearances by Blitz of the Seahawks and Cool Bird of the Thunderbirds. I mention this one now, because you are asked to register, although it looks like there are thousands of spots free. I suspect they’re just hoping to get a head count. Thanks to Kim of Valley Medical for sending this on. You can head here for more information, and of course, I’ll remind you about both of these in my weekend guides.
I used to live and teach in Kent, so I’m always excited to have fun happenings there to tell you about. Thanks to CoreyAnn and Barb for sending these in! Please don’t be shy about sharing your tips, too!
