Bellingham Parks Kid’ Fest

The 26th annual Bellingham Parks Kid’ Fest at Bloedel Donovan Park, on the shore of Lake Whatcom, is being held August 1st.  This is a completely FREE family event that showcases a wide variety of services and opportunities for children and their families in Whatcom County. In addition to woodturning by the NWWT, there will be a petting zoo, mini golf, inflatables, Lego fun land, face painting, balloons, martial arts, play dough, crafts, prize wheel, obstacle course, bike course, kayak demos, robotics, climbing rock wall, and MORE!

NWWT regularly showcases 8 or more lathes.  We normally set up around 10am. The Kid’s Fest starts at 11am and ends at 3pm.  Lunch is provided by participating organizations for the turners.  We turn as many tops as we can, and there are typically more than twelve hundred kids and parents that attend.  Contact Dave Blair at, or 360-733-3911.  Bring as many top blanks as you can!   NWWT will be set up in the shade at the entrance to the park from the parking lot.  Dave Blair will have a sign up sheet at the July meeting.
