Next Saturday, May 12 is the annual Madrona Mayfair and Block Party celebration. This year, the festivities begin with a pancake breakfast at Madrona K8 starting at 8am. The parade begins at 9:30 at Al Larkins park at 34th & Pike. There will be pony rides, face painting, an obstacle course and bouncy houses along with a bake sale, Pritty Boy’s pizza, hot dogs and St. Clouds fare.
Then, Seattle’s most rockin’ indie band, The NOT ITS, kicks off the afternoon with a free concert in the Amara parking lot (34th & Union) at noon. There will be three stages along 34th avenue with live music, artisan booths, sales and specials until 6pm.
A special thanks to our major sponsors: Business Owners of Madrona, Madrona Community Council, Ewing & Clark, Harvard Avenue Preschool, Lakeview Orthodontics, Madrona Family Dental along with other supporting businesses and neighborhood families.
