SummerFest Block Party
Usually on Marine View Drive S.W. just north of 26th Ave SW
Food, Music, Face Painting, Kid Activities, FUN!
We officially started this event back in July of 1993 with an impromptu street party near the south end of Marine View Dr. It was a tacky little event back then, designed mostly to entertain parents by prompting little kids to do silly things. Joe Cail manned the hot dog BBQ. Kevin DeLashmutt helped with buns and guarded the beer cooler. Ruth Williams supervised a Bicycle Rodeo to educate kids on how to ride safely so they wouldn’t get hit and dent our cars. We busted open a hay bale and lost a few kids in there as they searched around for candy and ticks. Margaret Barrett supervised fish painting, along with several other kids games scavenged from the Shorewood PTA. We made good memories and had surprisingly few injuries considering the lax level of supervision. It was a hoot!
