Fun awaits at Fauntleroy Fall Festival 2014
This year’s Fauntleroy Fall Festival is on Sunday, October 19 (2–5 p.m.) at The Hall at Fauntleroy, Fauntleroy Schoolhouse, and Fauntleroy Church and parking lot. This family-friendly community celebration is open to all!
Special activities include a climbing wall, pumpkin decorating, birdhouse construction, a mechanical bull, environmental corner activities, an inflatable obstacle course, pony rides, and a petting farm—bunnies and chickens and goals. Oh my!
The 2014 Fauntleroy Fall Festival lineup is now available online (click here).
Lots of music, dance, and other performances
Music and other performances will include the Back Porch Apostles Band, Chainsaw Geoduck Band, Endolyne Children’s Choir, Peter Guyon (and friends) Jazz Quartet, Five Buck Band, West Seattle Community Orchestra ensembles, West Seattle Dance (scenes from The Doll Maker), and the Jump Jazz Trio.
From 3:30-5 p.m., take a spin on the dance floor in the Vashon Room, The Hall at Fauntleroy, with the West Seattle Big Band. Those who attended the Fauntleroy Swing into Summer event last June will remember the fun!
Lots of cakes!
Bake a cake, judge many cakes, at the 4th annual Cake Decorating Contest in the Vashon Room at The Hall at Fauntleroy (west/lower level). A Cake Walk follows! To make this a success, lots of bakers are needed! All ages may participate. Contest categories include Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Cakes can be any shape or size. They should have either a Fall, Halloween, or West Seattle theme.
Bring your entry (or entries) on festival day, between 12 noon and 1 p.m. Voting begins at 1:30 p.m. and continues until about 3 p.m. Who votes? We all do! Once votes have been tallied, prizes will be awarded for each category.
The Cake Walk begins after the prizes have been awarded and continues until all the cakes have been given away. Even if you do not want to enter the Cake Decorating Contest, you can still bake and donate a cake for the Cake Walk. Cakes can be very simple or very elaborate. This is a wonderful parent/child, family, or group project! Questions? E-mail Carolyn Tucker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lots of good food to eat
Food will be available for purchase at various sites, offered by Stuffed Cakes (cupcakes and coffee), Guadalajara (tacos),
Endolyne Joe’s (pulled pork sliders),
Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes Catering (beef stew and butternut squash soup), and the Fauntleroy Church youth group (baked goods).
