Father’s Day Car Show, rides & more as Wild Strawberry Fest winds up today
We’re blogging live from Burien’s Wild Strawberry Festival – for our 5th consecutive year – and all sorts of shiny cool cars are out on SW 152nd, with carnival rides on the other side, along with live music, arts, crafts, kids’ fun and more on the final day.
The fest runs until 4 p.m., and the rides will run “until close” (as in when crowds diminish enough after dark), so grab Dad and come on down for a great day.
Oh, and be sure to drop by The B-Town Blog’s booth next to the main stage near City Hall – we’ll be here blogging live all day, and we’re also raising funds for The Maury Island Incident, a locally-produced film that starts shooting June 28. Come buy a collectible wristband for $25 and you’ll not only support the production, you’ll get in FREE to see the film when it plays at the Tin Theater!
