The Sidekickers are scheduled to perform Saturday, Oct. 7, at Perrinville-Palooza in Edmonds.

The public is invited to attend a free community event dubbed Perrinville-Palooza from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 in the Perrinville neighborhood of Edmonds, according to a news release.

The celebration takes place along 76th Avenue West between Olympic View Drive and 180th Street Southwest with a street closure. Enjoy entertainment and activities including live music, dance performances, food trucks, face painting, free balloon artists, bouncy house, a bubble house, giant street games and various art activities.

Embracing the fall season, attendees will enjoy a streetside pumpkin patch with pumpkins, hay bales, photo booth, and fall decorations. Fall-themed games like pumpkin tic-tac-toe and pumpkin bowling will also be set up. Attendees are welcome to take home free pumpkins.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. with a Wheels Parade welcoming participants with bikes, strollers, wheelchairs, skates, or any type of wheeled (non-motorized) vehicle. Costumes and pets are encouraged and everyone is welcome to participate. Registrations can be made in advance online as well as onsite just ahead of the parade start.

After the Wheels Parade, Seattle Dance Fitness from neighboring Shoreline will be organizing a community dance and dance games engaging attendees in a lively street dance party. Live music will be provided throughout the day by The Sidekickers and The Magic Key Ukulele performers.

This event celebrates community spirit with many local businesses participating with booths and tents offering products for sale and also art activities for attendees to enjoy.

Perrinville-Palooza is part of a community-led pilot project, implemented in partnership with the City of Edmonds as part of the Reimagining Neighborhoods & Streets project.

  1. Too bad none of the local residents aren’t supporting this event, as none of us even were aware of it being planned!

    1. I just found out about it and will certainly support the local efforts. They did reach out to local businesses and it’s never too late to join!!

    2. Post card were mailed out last Spring, looking for people that wanted to help plan. That’s how I found out about it.
      There are so many residents that are coming. Hope to see you there too.

  2. As long as all the good folks of Perrinville Neighborhood and everyone in greater Edmonds as a whole know that this is a festival promoted by our Mayor and his City Development and Planning Staffs, as opposed to a festival that sprang up naturally from a group of fun loving, close, and concerned neighbors and business people, I would say it’s a good thing for anyone who wants to to take part in to do so.

    The recent Porch Fest was a similar endeavor. The article about that event stated, “This event is sponsored by the City of Edmonds’ Reimagining Neighborhoods and Streets Program, which encourages people to activate their streets to build community and promote local businesses.”

    I won’t take part in any of this, as I don’t think this is what Mayors and City Staff’s should be all about. I think it’s a waste of our time and our money when we can’t afford it. If the event honestly sprang up from the grass roots and no city personnel were being paid to promote it with our tax money; I’d feel more positive about it.
