Queen Anne’s first Play Street happens Thursday, next door to the Queen Anne Farmers Market

playstreetflyerLocal community group Queen Anne Greenways has been busy behind the scenes getting ready for our first Queen Anne Play Street. They were at last week’s Queen Anne Farmers Market, talking about the inaugural Play Street that happens tomorrow, Thursday, July 28th.

A Play Street makes sense for a neighborhood like Queen Anne, and if you’re a regular at the Queen Anne Farmers Market, you know that kids are a big part of the summer community event. Now, kids are the center of attention with the Play Street, thanks to help from QAFM, the Queen Anne Community Center, and local businesses Once Upon a Time and Blue Highway Games.

The Play Street runs from 3pm to 6pm on 1st Ave W between Crockett and Howe Streets, right next to QAFM, and along the stretch that houses Queen Anne Pool and the Queen Anne Community Center. What can kids expect from this great community event? Free balloons, face painting, toys, a games table, and fun activities to keep them engaged.

Remember to bring the kids to the Play Street, a great companion for the kiddos who are often so patient with us adults at the Queen Anne Farmers Market – tomorrow is their day!
