McKinley Hill Street Fair back in action

The McKinley Hill Street Fair has been little more than a memory since 2008.

That will change Saturday (Aug. 16) when the fair returns with a day of activities, including live music, free school supplies and a visit by the Daffodil Festival princesses.

The street fair will be from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 35th Street and McKinley Avenue. In addition, there will be a health fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The street fair will have more than 50 vendors and musical performances by Ben Potter, Nolan Garrett, Two Story Zori and Rocky Sandoval.

It also will have three outdoor beer and wine gardens and food vendors, a chalk art zone and a children’s mural wall for photos.

Other events will include face painting, an appearance by the Seattle Mist Football players and skating tricks and lessons at the Alchemy Indoor Skate Park.

The health fair will include free haircuts, teeth screenings, physicals in addition to jump houses and carnival games. Organizers will give away 1,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to students from kindergarten to 12th grade.

The Lincoln High School Alumni Association will wrap up the school’s 100th birthday celebration. The final road rally will start at Lincoln High and end at the street fair with a raffle and awards at 3:30 p.m. at the VFW Hall.
